Ladys Bedstraw (Galium verum) wildflower


This medium height flower reaches 10-30 cm in height and has a stem surrounded by clusters of bright yellow flowers. You can expect to see this in flower from June to September time. Some alternative names for Lady’s Bedstraw include creeping Jenny, ladies’ tresses and yellow bedstraw. Lady’s Bedstraw was once used as a substitute in cheese making. The yellow flower gave the cheese a rich colour and its honey scent when fresh led to its use by shepherds in Tuscany to give sheep’s and goat’s cheese a sweeter taste.
