Wolfbane was an herb stored by Brother Farrow and found in Mossflower Woods. Veil Sixclaw used it to poison an oat-and-barley water that Myrtle drank. Veil was intending to kill Friar Bunfold with it for twisting his ear.

Badrang the Tyrant also used this herb when he tried to poison Cap'n Tramun Clogg, but the plan failed.

Two herbs may have inspired the plant that appears in the series:

  • Wolfsbane, a flowering purple plant. If applied to the skin or eaten, it can prove to be fatal.
  • Wolf's bane, a type of tobacco often used for muscle treatment.


Wolfbane appears in Outcast of Redwall and Martin the Warrior.
