Top radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'sun sinking among plants', bottom radical is another 'sun/day' radical (日). Henshall suggests taking the top radical as 'grass/plants', 'sun' (日), and a variant of 'big' (大), and as a mnemonic: 'Live to see sun set among big plants at end of day.'
