—Description [src]

Magical Mediterranean Water-Plants and Their Properties[1] or Magical Water Plants of the Mediterranean by Hadrian Whittle is a book about Herbology.

History

In 1994, Barty Crouch Jr, disguised as Alastor Moody, gave a copy of this book to Neville Longbottom, seemingly as a comfort for showing him the Cruciatus Curse on a spider. As part of Crouch Jr's plan to manipulate the Triwizard Tournament to allow Harry Potter to win, he placed the book within Harry's reach as it contained information on Gillyweed, which would allow him to pass the Second Task. However, due to Harry's pride (not asking for help from everyone around him), he did not discover this book.[2] Crouch later revealed his plot to Harry, and expressed annoyance at Harry's pride being a hindrance.[3]
