Agrimonia eupatoria is a species of agrimony that is often referred to as common agrimony, church steeples or sticklewort. Common folklore held that it could cure musket wounds and ward off witchcraft. Traditional British folklore states that if a sprig of the plant was placed under a person’s head, they would sleep until it was removed. A Green dye can be obtained from the leaves.
Often this species needs to be planted just before the frost or needs a long period of cold for Stratification, so its seed dormancy can be overcome.
