Pretty Pink Jewels

From the pink colour bed in Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand. I love the bright colour of Erigeron ‘Pink Jewel’. Erigeron is also known as fleabane which seems an awful name for a plant with lovely flowers! I took these photos 08 December 2020.

  1. On the other hand, if you had fleas, fleabane might be just the flower for you! The online etymology dictionary says of ‘bane’ that it refers to a “killer, slayer, murderer, a worker of death.” Begone, fleas! And the flower’s pretty, too.
