Default The Helper - Sticky Catchfly

Tjärblomster

From Wiki

Lychnis viscaria, the sticky catchfly, is a flowering plant in the family Caryophyllaceae.
It is an upright perennial, growing to 60 cm in height. It gets its English name from the stickiness of its stem. It grows on cliffs and in rocky places. It has a purple flower.
Lychnis viscaria is said to increase the disease resistance of surrounding plants. Extract from L. viscaria contains a relatively high amount of brassinosteroids, which have a proven positive effect on the growth of other plants. In Germany the extract is allowed for use as a "plant strengthening substance."

It grows like this. You can see traces of insects on some of the petals. It's not "dated" yet

GW,

Thanks for viewing. Yes, the more you get to know about the connections (contexts) of nature - the more fascinating. No need to decay into metafysics - there is more than enough in the real world - whatever that is

Not a good photo - much noise - but this picture shows the nature of the plant's "stickyness"
