Yellow Agrimony- this lovely, common plant, a member of the rose family (the flowers of which all have five petals), flowers on long stems up to one metre tall, in high summer. Also known as sticklewort, because the hooked seeds cling to fur and clothes of passers-by, it was used as a wound-healer and is still used in parts of France to heal sprains and bruises. An old English herbal says “If it be leyd under mann’s heed, he shall sleepen as he were deed’ and the Greeks used it for eye problems. It attracts bees and other insects and represents thankfulness. Conditions: Hot and sunny. Temperature: Max 24- Min 16C.
