Herniaria is a genus of flowering plants in the family Caryophyllales known generally as ruptureworts. They are native to Eurasia and Africa but several species have been widely introduced to other continents. These are flat, mat-forming annual herbs. The genus gets its scientific and common names from the once-held belief that species could be used as an herbal remedy for hernias. © Wikipedia authors and editors (licence)
