Menyanthes trifoliata is a vigorous aquatic plant which grows on wet ground and can be recognised by its delicate white flowers and its 3 folioles leaves which give it the name Water Club. The root is submerged but the leaves and floral stem are raised above the water. Its name which dates from the XVIIth century is derived from the Greek, minythô: to reduce, make smaller and anthes: flower, which means: "that which only flowers briefly". Known in phytotherapy for its strengthening properties, the parts used are the fresh leaves and the whole plant, harvested from May till September when it’s still in lower. A symbol of calm and rest, it is said that a daily cup of Menyanthes can extend lifespan.
