    Description and habitat


    • Perennial plant 10 to 40 cm high, woods, meadows and wet pastures throughout Europe except Mediterranean area

    • Small, yellowish-green flowers arranged in corymbs
    • The root stump is thick, brown, almost woody


    History and tradition


    • Called “plant of alchemists” because of its property of maintaining dew droplets around its leaves, which improves the harvest
    • It had the reputation of curing the sterility of women and even of firming up the tissues of the genital apparatus, because of its astringent properties, for women who wanted to pass themselves off as virgins, hence its nickname "cloak of the ladies”; for this purpose, we could also use alum (aluminum and potassium sulphate, very astringent) or walnut leaves very rich in tannins like those of lady's mantle
    • In the translation of Dioscorides' De Materia Medica, Andres de Laguna (1570) recommends two preparations of lady's mantle:
      • The root to treat internal and external wounds
