Professor Sprout's Garden

Right now the Garden is full right now of plants that put me in mind of Harry Potter. The new trailers are out for the Halfblood Prince film being released in November besides, so the timing is too perfect. Professor Sprout taught herbology, and I have imagined that she would have highlighted these plants:

Enchanter's Nightside (Circaea lutetiana)

Red Baneberry (Actaea rubra)

Spreading Dogbane (Apocynum androsaemifolium)
White baneberry (I question this identification, because the stems on the berries are quite thin and are supposed to be thick.)

Gray-headed coneflower (Ratibida pinnata)
