Roselle (plant) The roselle (Hibiscus sabdariffa) is a species of Hibiscus native to the Old World tropics, used for the production of bast fibre and as an infusion. It is an annual or perennial herb or woody-based subshrub, growing to 2–2.5 m (7–8 ft) tall. The leaves are deeply three- to five-lobed, 8–15 cm (3–6 in) long, arranged alternately on the stems. The roselle is known as the rosella or rosella fruit in Australia. The plant is considered to have antihypertensive properties. The red calyces of the plant are increasingly exported to America and Europe, where they are used as food colourings. In East Africa, the calyx infusion, called "Sudan tea", is taken to relieve coughs. The heated leaves are applied to cracks in the feet and on boils and ulcers to speed maturation. In Andhra cuisine, Hibiscus cannabinus, called Gongura, is extensively used. In Burmese cuisine, called chin baung ywet (lit. sour leaf), the roselle is widely used and considered an affordable vegetable for the population.

Courting Ms. Violet | thesensualshaman It is a Wednesday afternoon in late April. The day is overcast and cold for the middle of Spring. I wear my winter coat and sling my foraging bag over my shoulder. I am off to Central Park and pray to the water elementals to hold off until I am finished harvesting. I am on a mission. This season, a new plant ally has risen up to be greeted and I am becoming more familiar with her delightful acquaintance. Violet called to me across the park and told me exactly where to gather her. While many violets were growing along the Central Park pathways, she was very specific with me about which ones wanted to be harvested. On singing and picking, I was transported to when I was a little girl picking wild violets in my grandmother’s backyard. During a self-pleasuring meditation ritual after I had harvested my first batch of violets this summer, my clitoris actually appeared to me as a violet. As I harvested in the park today, Ms. If you find yourself in a field of violets stop and sit with her.

Flax Flax (also known as common flax or linseed), with the binomial name: Linum usitatissimum, is a member of the genus Linum in the family Linaceae. It is a food and fibre crop that is grown in cooler regions of the world. Linum usitatissimum is native to the region extending from the eastern Mediterranean, through Western Asia and the Middle East, to India. Description[edit] Capsules Flowers Flax, Linum usitatissimum, is an upright annual plant growing to 1.2 m (3 ft 11 in) tall, with slender stems. In addition to referring to the plant itself, the word "flax" may refer to the unspun fibers of the flax plant. History[edit] Flax is amongst the oldest fiber crops in the world.

Botanical Spice Index This index allows to locate spices according to their botanical association. Systematic botany provides a hierarchical systems, where the different levels are named taxa; the highest taxon in this index is called division, which is a very large one as all spice plants belong to the same division seed plants (other divisions are, for example, Fungi, Mosses and Ferns). This is followed by class, order and family down to the species level. There are additional taxa, only those of which have been included that apply throughout (this means, there are no superorders nor subfamilies). There are competing classification schemes; the one I am following here is given in the text book by Frohne and Jensen which is based both on botanical and chemical features of the plants. Some minor spice plants which have no full spice article yet are also included, and their names link to very short descriptions in the geographical index. Quick access to the subclasses:
