Background[edit | edit source]
Spindleweed is often found growing near bodies of water. It is used in a well-known folk remedy crafted to help heal the infirm. Having large amounts growing near a house will often bring neighbors offering sympathy and aid without provocation, as it's often a sign that someone in the house is fatally ill.
It is an old country saying that spindleweed grows best for the sorrowful. Verdant spindleweed in a household's garden has often brought neighbors offering consolation, usually without even asking what might be wrong. This originates from the plant's use as a seasoning for dishes meant to speed the recovery of the infirm. A person who grows much of it is likely caring for the fatally ill.
