Starthistle was a plant used as an ingredient in potions. Remus Lupin kept a jar of it in his office during his tenure as Defence Against the Dark Arts professor in 1993 and 1994.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Starthistle probably refers to Centaurea colcitrapa, common in southern England, which was once used to treat kidney disorders.[2]
  • The plant pictured appears to be millet, a plant eaten by small birds.
