The first Coltsfoot
There it is! The first Coltsfoot!
We have 40 cm snow on average, I think it may be even more in our garden. According to the Meteorological Institute, in our area it has melted 7 cm during one week.
Coltsfoot is a perennial herb in the Asteraceae family. It is native to Europe and has a long history of being used as an expectorant. The name 'Tussilago' comes from the Latin 'tussis' which means cough. The name Coltsfoot refers to the horseshoe shaped leaves.
