Artist's Description

Common Viper’s Bugloss- Echium vulgare.

Common Viper’s Bugloss- was intoduced to North America as a garden flower in the 1600’s, by the mid-1800’s, agriculturalists were condeming it as a vile forgein weed. Altough it is said to be ediible, it would make a rather bristly dish. In fact, some peole get a rash by simple touching this hairy plant.

I have been known to curse this beauty myself when weeding it out of my garden…picking out tiny fibers of it from my fingers long after I was done. lol!

The beautiful flowers on the other hand, make a pretty garnish when floated in punch or tossed in salads. At one time, common viper’s bugloss was said to have the power to drive away sadness, especially when mixed with wine. It was also belived to counteract viper venom, and therefore cure all snake bites. Unfortunatley, it was most effective when admimisterd before the bite, which required a certain amount of foresight.

Norwood Ontario Canada.
