Overview
Wormbush is an tropical annual weed, growing not higher than 1 foot tall; it is common in Suriname.
At the stem, which is scarcely branched, are short stalked, feather lobed leaves set like a whorl.
The spikes with small purple flowers come out of the middle of the whorl.
The flowers are on one side of the spike and they open in the afternoon.
The fruit is a 2-lobed, capsule with warty seeds.
Wormbush or pinkroot is very poisonous; it contains the alkaloid Spigeline that acts upon the heart, especially the endocardium.
In large doses it debilitates the heart.
