Folio 32r, Speedwell (Veronica triphyllos), belongs to a species of herbs native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It has a fibrous root system and simple, opposite leaves. Its blue flowers are adapted for cross-fertilization, the stamens and style projecting from the flower and forming a place for insects to land. The astringent leaves were once used to treat wounds and skin diseases.
