True Lover’s Knot


This unusual looking flower has a beautiful name, True Lover’s Knot but is also called Herb Paris (Paris quadrifolia) and is as one of the names suggests, a herb. In Swedish it’s called ‘Ormbär’ and had a bit of a bad reputation in the old folklore. Growing in the dark forest grove and it’s unusual appearance made people reluctant to touch it. Will give you quite a stomach ache if taken for a blue berry and eaten, more than five, contact a doctor.

Embrace diversity, ha de Gött!

  2. Indeed a beautiful but dangerous plant every one should be able to recognise.
