Professor Pomona Sprout is head of Hufflepuff house at Hogwarts. She teaches Herbology to the students.
She is a short, squat witch with flyaway gray hair. She wears a heavy patched hat and generally will have a large amount of dirt on her clothes and under her fingernails. She is a very cheerful woman and a gentle and caring teacher.
Professor Sprout handles many dangerous and exotic plants, while teaching the students about all the advantages and disadvantages of them all. Her skills in Herbology has aided Madam Pomfrey, the school's nurse, since a lot of her plants became much needed ingredients for medications.
