Coltsfoot Leaf (Cut and Sifted)
Botanical Name: Tussilago farfara
Common Names: Coughwort, Foal's Foot, bull's foot, horsefoot, butterbur, British tobacco
The Tussilago farfara is a wild flowering plant native to Eurasia that was introduced to the Western Hemisphere by settlers over the past 3-4 centuries. More commonly known as Coltsfoot (leaf of this plant resembles a young horse's hoof), Tussilago farfara looks a great deal like the common dandelion, but grows quite differently. Like many organic herbs, Tussilago farfara is edible.
