Herb-paris

Description:

Herb-paris, or true lover's knot, is recognisable from its four broad, oval leaves. The plant is known as the herb of equality due to the symmetry of its leaves, and it also derives its common name from the Latin par, meaning equal. Historically, herb-paris was also used by herbalists in marriage rituals and even against the disorder of witches!
