Default Heal All

An interesting little flower.

Folklore

Heal all was once proclaimed to be a holy herb and was thought to be sent by God to cure all ailments of man or beast. It was said to drive away the devil, which lead to the belief that Heal-All was grown in the Witches garden as a disguise. The root was also used to make a tea to drink in ceremonies before going hunting by one Native American tribe to sharpen the powers of observation.

Interesting! Further reading the wikipedia link, it apparently truly has antibacterial and other medicinal properties. Isn't nature wonderful?

Beautiful shots.
