Drumstick primrose (Primula denticulate)

As with a large number of plant species in Bhutan and Himalaya as a whole, this one is a hugely popular garden plant in Europe, as it is so easy to grow. It is so common in garden centers and gardens, that when I realized what species I saw alongside the roads I was reluctant […]

African Boxwood (Myrsine africana)

African Boxwood (Myrsine africana)

A most peculiar inflorescence, but with with very attractive color! I found only two plants with this stage of flowering and fresh leaves seen here – all other were passed bloom. Again the top of Socotra – Skant (or Skand) was the very last range for the season, as on lower altitudes the dry season […]

A most peculiar inflorescence, but with with very attractive color! I found only two plants with this stage of flowering – all other were passed bloom. Again the top of Socotra – Skant (or Skand) was the very last range for the season, as on lower altitudes the dry season was well underway.

Blue pimpernell (Anagallis arvensis var. caerulea) UV

Brighter in UV than in visible light, but the center is less prominent and the yellow stamens are very dark.

Blue pimpernell (Anagallis arvensis var. caerulea)

This plant is one of many interesting species I found in a very small area in a valley at 320 meters altitude. A river runs through on the valley floor, supporting lots of more water demanding species, but just a few meters up the mountain slopes a rocky a harsher environment with lots of plant […]

ARCC plant 01 (Clavija sp)

At first this seemed like a struggling tree species looking for light, but at closer look it was full of flowers and thus at home in the shadows on the forest floor at the Amazon Research and Conservation Center (ARCC) in Peru. Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂

Nonsblom (Anagallis arvensis)

Utenom blomstringen kan nonsblom minne om vassarve.

Nonsblom (Anagallis arvensis)

Denne enslige planten fant jeg også på nedsiden av gangstien på hovedstranden sør på Hovedøya – like ved klourten. Ligner veldig på en rød arve! Atter et ubegripelig navn! Er nons fra nonsens, mon tro? Altså en tulleblomst? Ikke vet jeg. Danskene kaller den rød arve. Jeg blir i hvertfall ikke klok…. Den kommer også […]
