Common Name: Field Madder (Blue Fieldmadder, Fieldmadder)
Latin Name:Sherardia arvensis; syn. Galium sherardia
Family Name: Rubiaceae
The Field Madder is closely related to, and can possibly be confused with, Goose Grass and the Bedstraws (plants of the Galium genus), which are in the same family. We can find no evidence of toxicity in this plant and so it can be fed as part of a wider, varied diet.
The flowers can be found in pink, lilac and white.
