Asperula cynanchica, the squinancywort or squincywort, is a species of flowering plant in the family Rubiaceae. Its common name is derived from its former use as a medicinal herb to cure quinsy. It is native to much of southern and central Europe from Spain and Ireland to Russia. In Sweden, the roots have been used as a red dying agent. © Wikipedia authors and editors (licence)
