Red Soapwort.

  1. I’m amazed at how many little flowers there are in your woods and marshes. I love their names too. They remind me of some medieval herb garden. I wouldn’t mind betting many of them have medicinal properties.
    It is so long since I studied Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy, I have forgotten most of the herb and flower names and uses (except for the few culinary herbs growing in pots on my balcony).
    You would probaly find ‘soapwort’ has some sort of soapy texture and cleansing properties (that’s a guess).

    • Thank you, Vicki. There are plenty of wild flower blooms to come yet,

      Many of the wild flowers have medicinal uses. Often, the use is in the name.

      ‘Wort’ means ‘plant’, so it is a soap plant.
