Also known as Addersmeat, The specific epithet holostea comes from the Greek holosteon, literally meaning ‘entire bone’; a reference to the brittleness of the weak stems of this plant. The common name Stitchwort is a reference to a herbal remedy in which this plant is used allegedly to cure side stitch.
