Velvetleaf, Butter Print, Pie Maker

Velvetleaf is one of the first plants I wrote about. The leaves do have the feel of soft velvet. Here is a picture of a velvetleaf seed pod. Inside the pod are several dark, flat, kidney shaped seeds. The names of butter print and pie maker have also been used for this plant as it was believed that cooks would use the seed pod to decorate their churned butter and pie crust.
