Agrimonia, Agrimonia eupatoria

Family of rosacee

This plant grows along escarpments situated in sunny areas. I saw it growing near the window of a healer's house because seeds were lost during the drying process.

It is used to make infusions and it is considered a useful remedy against gall-stones.
