Agrimonia eupatoria L.
Plant Family: Rosaceae
Agrimony is an herb in the rose family found near hedges and fences throughout England. Bearing yellow flowers with egg-shaped petals on spikes emanating from hairy stems, agrimony exudes a distinctive, pleasant scent that is often compared to apricots but isn't as sweet. During the Elizabethan period herbalists began referring to the plant as philanthropos, perhaps because of its beneficial properties, or perhaps because its seeds stick to the clothing of passers by, giving them the "gift" of next year's plants.
