Nipplewort (Lapsana communis)
Nipplewort (Lapsana communis)
The scientific name of this plant comes from Lapsane, an edible herb described by Marcus Terentius Varro, a scholar and writer in ancient Rome. The English name 'nipplewort' derives from its closed flower buds, which resemble nipples. The plant is an annual herb in the daisy family. Although perceived as a weed it also has medicinal properties, having a calming and antiseptic effect, and it also helps staunch the flow of milk when it is time to stop breast-feeding. The young leaves can be used in salads or cooked like spinach.
