Chinese Name  :

Common Name  :Honeysuckle Flower

Specific Name  : Flos lonicerae

Scientific Name:
Collection  : The drug is collected before flowering in summer and dried or dried after fumigating with sulfur.

Description  : Flower of Lonicera Japonica: clavate, stout in the upper part and tapered downwards, slightly curved, 2 - 3cm long, about 3mm in diameter in upper part 1.5mm in diameter in lower part. Externally yellowish white or greenish white, gradually darken on keeping, densely pubescent, foliaceous bracts occasionally visible, calyx green, 5 lobed at the apex, lobes pubescent, about 2mm long. Corolla tubular when open, apex 2 lipped, stamens 5, epipetalous, yellow, pistil 1, ovary glabrous, odour delicately aromatic, taste weak and slightly bitter.Flower of Lonicera Hypoglauca: 2.5 - 4.5cm long, 0.8 - 2mm in diameter, extternally yellowish white to yellowish brown, glabrous or sparsely pubescent, calyx tube glabrous, 5 lobed at the apex, lobes long triangular pubescent. The lower lip of corolla recurved when open. Style glabrous.Flower of Lonicera Confusa: 1.6 - 3.5cm long, 0.5 - 2mm in diameter, calyx tube and corolla densely covered with greyish white hairs. Ovary hairy.Flower of Lonicera Dasystyla: 2.5 - 4cm long, 1 - 2.5mm in diameter. Externally pale purplish yellow, glabrous, calyx lobes short triangular. The upper lip of the corolla usually irregular when open, style densely covered with long pubescences at the lower part.Identification: To 0.2g of the powder add 5ml of methanol, macerate for 12 hours, filter, the filtrate is use as the test solution. Dissolve chlorogenic acid CRS in methanol to produce a solution containing 1mg per ml as the reference solution. Carry out the method of thin layer chromatography (Appendix Vl B), using silica gel H containing sodium carboxymethylcellulose as coating substance and the upper layer of butylacetate-formic acid-water (7:2:5:2.5) as the mobile phase. Apply separately to the plate 10-20µl of the test solution and 10µl of the reference solution. After developing and removal of plate, dry it in the air and examine under ultra violet light (365nm). The fluorescent spot in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution corresponds in the position and color to the fluorescent spot obtained with the reference solution.

Identification  :

Processing  :

Action  : To remove toxic heat and dispel wind-heat.

Indication  : carbuncles, boils, erysipelas, acute dysentery, pharyngitis, upper respiratory tract infection, epidemic febrile diseases

Precautions  :

Dosage  : 6 to 15 g.

Storage  : Preserve in a cool and dry place, protected from moisture and moth.
