The March meeting is on Tuesday March 27, 7 p.m.
Our plants this month:
Cleavers – Galium aparine – aerial parts
Chickweed – Stellaria media or S. corei (aka S. pubera) – aerial parts
Violets – aerial parts. Herbalist Crystal Merrell reports, “All species of Viola are edible as a salad green or pot herb, some are better thatn others. Violets make an excellent tea. Yellow violets are more laxative than others.”
Official one for herbalists is Violeta odorata.
Caution: Do NOT consume African violet, a houseplant that is not a true violet.
