devil’s claw

悪魔のかぎ爪

4 November 1991, Botswana
Christmas Plants

One more seasonal plant – Devil’s claw is featured in a Christmas stamp. Scary shape and name, but it has been used as a medicinal plant to reduce pain. Thus nominated as a guardian plant and one of the national plants of Botswana.

Have a merry Christmas!

「悪魔のかぎ爪」って、すごい名前の植物ですが、見かけによらず親しまれてきたのは、痛み止めの薬として昔から使われた歴史があるからのようです。なので、守護植物としてボツワナの国章の植物の一つにもなっています。

すてきなクリスマスをおすごしください。
