Balsam and Meadowsweet, Ditcheat
Jumping Jack is the most common species of balsam and was first introduced early in the 18th century. It is also called policeman's helmet because of its hooded purplish-pink flowers.
The scent of meadowsweet, or queen of the meadows, was appreciated by medieval householders who strewed it among the rushes which covered their floors.
