Botanical name: Euphrasia spp
Common Names: Euphrasia. (French) Casse-lunette.
Habitat: The plant is native to Europe, Northern and Western Asia and North America. It grows well on moist and chalky soils, on Alpine and sub-alpine meadows with frequent snow periods.
The Eyebright is the only British species of a genus containing twenty species distributed over Europe, Northern and Western Asia and North America.
Plant Description: Eyebright is a creeping, herbaceous, semi-parasitic plant. It has square, branchy stems and round to pointed leaves.
The plant is in flower from July to September. Flowers are small, white to purple, with numerous spots and stripes on the surface. They are borne in spikes from the upper leaves.
The stem is erect and wiry, either unbranched in small specimens, or with many opposite branches.
The leaves are 1/6 to 1/2 inch long and about 1/4 inch broad, opposite to one another on the lower portion of the stem, alternate above, more often lance-shaped, though sometimes, as already stated, much broader, and with four to five teeth on each side.
The flowers, white, or lilac and purpleveined, are in terminal spikes, with leafy bracts interspersed. The structure of the flower places the plant in the family of the Foxglove and the Speedwell – Scrophulariaceae.
The corolla is two-lipped, its lower, tube-like portion being enclosed in a green calyx, tipped with four teeth. The upper lip is two-lobed and arches over the stamens, forming a shelter from the rain.
The lower lip is spreading and three-lobed, each lobe being notched. A yellow patch emphasizes the central lobe and purple honey guides on both upper and lower lips – marked streaks of colour – point the way down the throat.
