GPS Coordinates

This small plant crossed the Atlantic Ocean with the European settlers that arrived on the North American shores. As the plant spread across the continent, it gained the name "white man's footprint" by the Native peoples as it seemed to follow where the white settlers went. It also has gone by the name of "Nature's Bandaid" as it is often used to soothe bug bites, scrapes, and other minor irritations.
