Speedwell

 

Veronica Officinalis

I  have written this for educational purposes. If in doubt don’t, make certain you know your plants. This is not medical advice and should not be taken as such.

Speedwell, common gypsy weed also referred to as Europe Tea.

Has been used for centuries as food, tea and medicinal purposes. There are hundreds of species but the only one I am familiar with is Veronica Officinalis.
