Veronica

(Scrophulariaceae - snapdragon family)
About 250 species of annual or perennial herbs of the north temperate zone. Many species are cultivated as ornamentals. Species of Veronica are used as food plants by larvae of some species of Lepidoptera. Linnaeus named this genus in 1753. "Veronica" is for St. Veronica, who supposedly gave a small cloth to Jesus to wipe his face. Marks on some species of Veronica were compared to marks on Veronica's cloth.
