Learnt about Wood Betony today, which prevents “frightful nocturnal goblins and terrible sights and dreams”. It’s also a handy ground cover plant, using it in a part of the garden I’m working at. Scientific name is Stachys officinalis, which sounds mighty familiar. Another name is Bishop’s Wort; I think I’ve seen it sold as a cultivated flower.
