Medical: The family Scrophulara comprises about 200 species of herbaceous flowering plants that are commonly called figwort. It is found throughout the northern hemisphere, as well as having concentrations in Asia. The name Scrophulara comes from scrofula, a form of tuberculosis. Figwort is a course, erect perennial with thick square fleshy stems and green or purple flowers. It thrives in wet and damp places, in open woodland. It is gathered in the summer when it is in bloom. It is a part of the snap dragon family, and is related to mullein, speedwell, and foxglove, among others.
