Chicory
  Chicory June 13, 2012
Wikipedia: Root chicory contains volatile oils similar to those found in plants in the related genus Tanacetum which includes Tansy, and is similarly effective at eliminating intestinal worms. All parts of the plant contain these volatile oils, with the majority of the toxic components concentrated in the plant's root.[16] Chicory is well known for its toxicity to internal parasites. Studies indicate that ingestion of chicory by farm animals results in reduction of worm burdens,[17][18][19] whi Chicory

  Taube Lace Cap Hydrangea October 09, 2010

The hydrangea is known as a hyperaccumulator and the change in pigment depends on the amount of aluminum ions present in the soil. The roots and leaves of certain Hydrangea species are known to have some medicinal value. However, it i Taube Lace Cap Hydrangea

Beets' value grew in the 19th century when it was discovered that they were a concentrated source of sugar, Beets

Experts believe saffron was first documented in a 7th century BC Assyrian botanical reference compiled under Ashurbanipal. Since then, documentation of saffron's use over the s Saffron Crocus
