Plant folklore

I am conducting a survey of the folklore and uses of wild plants, so I would be pleased to hear of any memories which readers might have.

Were you ever told not to bring certain flowers indoors? Do you remember any local plant names? Did you ever play games with wild plants, or use any herbal remedies?

If you did, please contact me.
