This species is used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic for strengthening the body. It is a distinctive, widespread taxon exhibiting almost continuous variation in leaf and inflorescence form across the range. It is here treated as a species (with three forms: f. japonica, f. dissecta (Y. Yabe) Hara, and f. pinnatisecta S. L. Liou) closely resembling, but distinct from, the North American Cryptotaenia canadensis (Linnaeus) de Candolle.
