Medium sized greenish flower
  Medium sized greenish flower June 05, 2013
Could somebody help me ID a plant? It has a long stem and the flowers gather at the top (there are about 50+ pods). The three bottom pods have opened up to reveal flowers that are very much like lillies in appearance. They are a light green colour. I am happy to accept it is a lillie, except that it is a single stem, with no leaves across the stem, and the number of pods for flowers is huge, something I have never seen on a lilly before. Plus, I do have a lilly in my garden (Orange Tiger Lilly) Medium sized greenish flower

Beets
  Beets July 15, 2010
In earlier times, people exclusively ate the beet greens and not the roots. The ancient Romans were one of the first civilizations to cultivate beets to use their roots as food. The tribes that invaded Rome were responsible for spreading beets throughout northern Europe where they were first used for animal fodder and later for human consumption becoming more popular in the 16th century. Beets' value grew in the 19th century when it was discovered that they were a concentrated source of sugar, Beets

Cayenne
  Cayenne July 15, 2010
The origin of this herb, now used as food and medicine in most countries of the world, is uncertain. Cayenne was not mentioned in writings from ancient Egypt (1500 BC), Greece (455 BC to 50 BC), Rome (25 BC to 150 AD), Persia (13th century), India and China, so historians claim Cayenne peppers originated from the Americas, most likely from the banks of the Amazon. It is impossible for modern botanists to say where cayenne grew in some ancient time as a wild plant, because it has been domesticate Cayenne

Cashew
  Cashew July 14, 2010
It was brought to India and East Africa during the 1400s by Portuguese missionaries.

Many parts of the plant are used by the Patamona of Gyana medicinally. The bark is scraped and Cashew

Dogs Mercury
  Dogs Mercury June 21, 2010
You will find it spoken of in the old herbals as possessing wonderful powers, but it has been abandoned as a dangerous remedy for internal use. In spite of its dangers, Dog’s Mercury has nevertheless been used in the past as a medicinal herb. Maybe its abundance in woodlands is a factor here, since our ancestors would seldom waste any local resource. I have also heard that that gypsies have used this herb for divining the sex of an unborn baby. Medicinal Uses: “Hippocrates commends this herb f Dogs Mercury

  American Strawberry Bush June 18, 2010
Strawberry-bush caught the eye of early botanists who visited the New World, so much so that in 1663 it was among the first American plants exported back to Europe for horticultural use. These botanical explorers admired not only the dazzling fall fruit but also the lightly serrated dark green leaves that in fall turn yellow or even white before falling to the woodland floor. Medicinal Uses: Native Americans used the roots of Strawberry-bush to make a tea for stomach and urinary problems and u American Strawberry Bush

Cattail
  Cattail May 30, 2010
The Klamath and Modocs of northern California and southern Oregon make flexible baskets of twined tule or cattail. Cattails or tules were also twined to form mats of varying sizes for sleeping, sitting, working, entertaining, covering doorways, for shade, and a myriad of other uses. The Cahuilla Indians used the stalks for matting, bedding material, and ceremonial bundles. Some tribes used the leaves and sheath bases as caulking materials. Apaches used the pollen in female puberty ceremonies. Af Cattail
