(Lady’s bedstraw) As its name implies, it was used historically as stuffing material for mattresses. Produces bright yellow flowers. Red dyes are extracted from its roots while the tops are a source of yellow dye. Traditionally, Yellow Bedstraw was grown for its ability to curdle milk and act as cheese rennet while adding a familiar yellow-orange colouring. Recent research by Schmidt et al (2014) has supported
traditional use as an anticancer remedy, as it demonstrated DNA protection against benzapyrene, a toxic compound in cigarette smoke. Sow in loose, moist soil, rich in organic matter. Ht 12-18in (30-45cm).
