HERB ROBERT


There are many medicinal claims made for this common member of the Cranesbill family, including as a cure for diarrhoea. It is believed to be named after Robert of Molesme, a herbalist and one of the founders of the Cistercian Order of monks. Crush its leaves and you get an unpleasant smell that gives rise to an alternative name: Stinking Bob. Other names include Storksbill and Death Come Quickly.
