Woodruff

This plant is reputed to have healed cuts and wounds when applied, and also treating liver conditions during the Middle Ages. Heavily used in herbal medicine woodruff was also used to deter insects and mixed with snuff to improve the fragrance. The plant has small white flowers in the summer, is low-lying and has narrow leaves which will stick to almost anything.
