Wood Betony for health
This modest, low-maintenance plant will brighten the whole garden by its color flowers. Butterflies, bees, bumblebees, beetles, ants and all the little animals, what they like nectar, love it.
Stachys officinalis Betonica officinalis
An old Italian proverb, ' Sell your coat and buy Betony,' shows what value was placed on its healing abilities. Antonius Musa, chief physician to the famous Emperor Augustus, wrote a whole book about this plant and her impact on health.
