Myosotis (Forget-me-not) - In a German legend, God named all the plants when a tiny unnamed one cried out, "Forget-me-not, O Lord!" God replied, "That shall be your name." Another legend tells when the Creator thought he had finished giving the flowers their colours, he heard one whisper "Forget me not!" There was nothing left but a very small amount of blue, but the forget-me-not was delighted to wear such a light blue shade. //Pomněnka //Vergissmeinnicht

Symphytum officinale (comfrey) -Scientific studies on those rodents indicated that continued use of comfrey produced liver problems. Researchers tracked down the problem by focusing on a chemical compound called prrylizidine alkaloid. When taken internally, this compound turns toxic. The problem is that it does so gradually over time. So instead of making one sick, comfrey can be taken for years without anyone noticing any kind of warning sign until it is too late. //Kostival //Beinwell

Paris quadrifolia (herb paris, true lover’s knot, devil-in-a-bush) - Herb Paris’s generic name Paris is a reference to the Troyan prince of the same time who in Ancient Greek mythology was asked by the god Hermes to give a golden apple to the most beautiful goddess. The berry is poisonous to humans, and even a few berries are enough to cause symptoms. The disgusting flavour of the berry is a good safeguard however against ingesting a fatal dose. //Vraní Oko //Einbeere
