This brilliantly symmetrical woundwort was picked by the edge of a lake in deepest darkest Norfolk and pressed by Ruby in her studio.

 

It was pressed using the traditional method of flower pressing and then photocopied to create this lovely and unique print. 

 

Mrs (Maud) Grieve described hedge woundwort in her A Modern Herbal (1931) as “a coarse, hairy, malodorous plant, common in woods and hedges”. She quotes earlier herbalists who claimed that “stamped with vinegar” it might be a useful poultice to take away wens and inflammations of the lymph nodes. A distillation of the flowers was used to make the heart merry and the spirits lively and, like all woundworts, it was used for staunching blood.
