by J.K. Rowling

Professor Pomona Sprout

Character Analysis

Professor: Herbology
House: Head of Hufflepuff

Professor Sprout shows up only briefly in Goblet of Fire. She continues to teach Herbology, and she and Neville Longbottom are close because Neville has a real green thumb. Professor Sprout also is left with the Diggorys after Cedric's death, since, as the head of his house, she knew the boy well.
