devil’s claw


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!
