Marsh Woundwort

Another wort in flower right now, also known as clown's woundwort, clown's heal-all and marsh hedgenettle. Its traditional use was to promote the healing of wounds. Its typical habitat is near the shore of lakes, in marshes, on the banks of ditches and streams, in damp meadows, in arable ground and in waste places, this one was spotted growing on the banks of the river towards pool. As a member of the mint family, it has a rapid spreading habit, the flowers grow in whirls on a spike and are loved by bees.
