Knotgrass   Listen
noun
Knotgrass  n.  (Bot.)
(a)
A common weed with jointed stems (Polygonum aviculare); knotweed.
(b)
The dog grass. See under Dog. Note: An infusion of Polygonum aviculare was once supposed to have the effect of stopping the growth of an animal, and hence it was called, as by Shakespeare, "hindering knotgrass." "We want a boy extremely for this function, Kept under for a year with milk and knotgrass."
