This is a Chinese herb plant that
Has medicinal qualities.
Wild in high mountain habitat,
It has been sought for centuries
By humans plucking its bulbs, and
With bright flowers and leaves it be
Easy to find sprouting from land.
So this plant genetically
Is becoming more brown and gray
To blend in with the ground around,
To camouflage in such a way
So it's not so easily found.
Apparently this plant can sense
The need to change for self defense.
