Speedwell, perhaps due to its name, has historically been considered a good luck charm for travellers, in Ireland it was sewn into clothes before a journey to protect against accidents. Its scientific name Veronica chamaedrys alludes to the legendary Saint Veronica, who is said to have wiped the face of Jesus as he went to Calvary. The flowers supposedly resemble the markings left on the cloth with which she wiped Jesus’ face. In Germany, Speedwell is also known by the comical name 'Männertreu', or 'men's faithfulness' because it wilts so quickly after picking.
