Ugjunnait | Hairy Lousewort

Scientific name: Pedicularis hirsuta

The leaves and flowering stems of these plants may be used as herbs in soups or stews.
The roots and young stems are also edible raw.

There are a lot of long and complicated words used in the study of plants. For example, in order to say that the leaves of hairy lousewort are not the same in the tuft at the base as the leaves growing up the stem, we could use the word heterophyllous. Heterophyllous is made up of two Greek words: the word hetero, meaning the other or different, and the word phyllous, meaning leaf. Or to explain that the petals are not bilaterally symmetrical, we could say that the flowers are zygomorphic. Zygomorphic is also a combination of two Greek words: zygo, meaning paired or two, and morphic, meaning form. Botanists use Greek terms like these so they can communicate with each other about plants even when they do not speak the same languages in everyday life. source
