Silverweed Potentilla anserina
A common weed of most gardens. The flowers resemble those of the poisonous buttercup, but the leaves look very different, with a silvery-white down on the underside, which is why this small plant is called silverweed. These silver hairs are quite cooling, and for this reason have been placed in the shoes of walkers to bring relief to blistered feet.
LEAVES - a tea can be made from the dried leaves
ROOT - the roots have been eaten raw, or cooked like a potato
