Elben's Basket was a sunflower native to cool, temperate shortgrass prairies which closely resembled the common sunflower except its flowers were white, not yellow. A tea brewed from its roots contained a powerful heart stimulant. Although it had uses in treating heart disease, it was mainly used as a combat stimulant because it could double the user's speed for a short time. If taken more than once per hour, Elben's-Basket tea was a circulatory poison.
