Coldsfoot/Coltsfoot/Coughwort (Tussilago Farfara):

A wild herb, found growing freely in Britain; they days, particularly in undisturbed places – like the edge of motorways and railway lines.

It has yellow flowers, rather like a tight dandelion. These are followed by heart-shaped leaves, about 4 ins/8cm across. The two are rarely seen together.

The leaves used to be used in herbal tobacco and are reputedly good for colds, coughs and asthma – if made into tea.
