cleavers

plant overview
cleavers, teas and topical infusions

Cleavers, also known as goosegrass, kisses, sticky willy, stickyweed and a variety of other common names, is a common annual groundcover usually found thriving in abandoned lots and waste places. Although the plant exudes a sap when plucked, the “sticky” factor responsible for so many of the plant’s nicknames comes from the hairs that cover the plant and act as tiny hooks. Like nettles, the entire plant is edible when cooked to remove the hooked hairs, but the herb is more commonly used in teas and to make topical infusions and washes.

Clicking "learn more" next to each variety will take you to individual product pages for details.
