Lobelia chinensis, commonly known as the Chinese Lobelia, Herba Lobellae Chinensis, aze mushiro, and mizo kakushi,[1] is a species of flowering plant in the family Campanulaceae. It is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, where it has the name (Chinese: ; pinyin: bàn biān lián).[2]

L. chinensis is a small perennial herb[3] that grows in tangled clumps from 15 centimetres (5.9 in) to 35 centimetres (14 in) long. It has a long, thin, branching stem that is olive green and green-brown crumpled narrow leaves. It has little to no odor and a sweet and pungent taste. When harvesting herbs for medical use, the ones with the greenest stems and yellower roots are preferred.[2]
L. chinensis is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs in Chinese herbology. Historically, L. chinensis has been used in herbal medicine to help stop smoking,[citation needed] however the Food and Drug Administration has banned the use of herbs containing lobeline.[citation needed]
L. chinensis is considered mildly toxic[1] due to its adverse effects, including vomiting, heartburn, anxiety, vibrating, eclampsia, increased heart-rate, and severe stomach aches.[5]
