The heart-shaped flowers of this plant have led to its folk-name
of "Break-your-mother's-heart". Another name is
"Bird's-eye Speedwell" due to the flower's eye-like
appearance. It was thought that if anyone was unwise enough
to pick these flowers, a bird would come and peck out their
eyes, or even worse, their mother's eyes!
