Nettles, elder tree

Titus Andronicus, [2.3.198-203]. Sulturninus. [reading] “‘An if we miss to meet him handsomely,/ Sweet huntsman, Bassianus ’tis we mean,/ Do thou so much as dig the grave for him./ Thou know’st our meaning. Look for thy reward/ Among the nettles at the elder-tree/ Which overshades the mouth of that same pit/ Where we decreed to bury Bassianus./l Do this, and purchase lthy lasting friends.’/ O Tamora, was ever heard the like?/ This is the pit, and this the elder-tree./ Look, sirs, if you can find the huntsman out/ That should have murdered Bassianus here.”
