Wood Avens (Geum urbanum)
Also known as Herb Bennet, colewort and St. Benedict's herb, this very common plant prefers shaded habitats and can commonly be found growing in woods and hedgerows from May to September.

The young leaves can be eaten and older leaves can be dried and powdered to be added to herbal salt. The roots can be harvested either in spring, when they can be more aromatic, or from September until late in the winter. The root is the most popular part of this plant for use in culinary creations and is reported to add an aromatic hint of cinnamon and cloves to dishes, soups or drinks, such as lemonades or chai. Wood avens also has a long list of medicinal properties.
