Cephalanthera damasonium (Miller) Druce
white helleborine
Damasonium; : latinisation of the ancient Greek plantname damasonion, a synonym of Alisma (q.v.). The word may be connected with the Greek daman, to curb, control; and would then allude to the fact that the plant was regarded as an antidote against the poison of toads and sea-hares.
