Cramp Bark (Viburnum opulus)
This viburnum shrub’s name is telling, yet not of the whole story, which is more intricate and involved than any common botanical name can quite encompass. If cramp bark could talk, would she tell a story about infamous aches of muscle or womb, or would she tell a tale of blossoms the size and color of snowballs or drooping berry clusters as burgundy as blood? Only those who listen closely to her will have a chance to eavesdrop on these viburnum victories.
Looking for more info? These herbs work so well that if we told you about them we couldn’t sell them to you (seriously, US laws are that crazy: we can teach or we can sell but not both!). Luckily Grandmother Google knows all.
