Common bedstraw (Galium verum) is a herbaceous plant with yellow inflorescences. The name Gallium verum comes from the Greek and means "milk". The bedstraw is found in large parts of Asia and Europe. The herb is also called sweetheart's bedstraw, limbwort or yellow forest straw. The yellowish flowers smell of honey. English Chester cheese is still made with bedstraw today and this is also what gives it its yellow colouring.
