Marsilea Aegyptica


By Meanie

Marsilea Aegyptica (marsilea aegyptica)

Went to the Botanic gardens in Oxford today. This was another small flower in what I call the "wet" house.

Lovely, reminds me very much of a tiny salvia I have that came in a packet of mixed seed, salvia 'repens', only have to brush against the leaves and the smells amazing.

I don't know much about any of the plants that I've posted photos of today (except the Erythrina), but I guess it could be from the same "family".
Very small flowers of about 12mm.
