Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Good Friday grass

Posted on by royvickery |


Friday grass, officially known as Luzula campestris in Latin, and field wood-rush in English, flowering today, Good Friday, on Tooting Common, London Borough of Wandsworth.  It appears that it was given this name due to its time of flowering, rather than being otherwise associated with the Crucifixion.
