Stachys officinalis is commonly known as common hedgenettle, betony, purple betony, wood betony, bishopwort, or bishop’s wort. The French common name is betoine, and Betonie in German. It is a perennial grassland herb growing to 1 to 2 feet tall.  The word stachys comes from the Greek, meaning “an ear of grain,” and refers to the fact that the inflorescence is often a spike.
