Chamomile


Known since ancient times, and considered to be a flower sent by the Sun God, Chamomile was used even in Egypt and Rome as a topical ointment to relieve muscle pain. found throughout the country, and famous for its unparalleled curative powers, Hungarian Cahmomile is most wide spread on the lick soil of the Great Plains.



Hawk-Fountain Bath



We see this plant along the road, on pastures, and in the humidity of riverbanks. It can grow as tall as 2 meters (6 ½ ft). Weavers used its husky flower petals to teasel, to nap the baize. Adherent leaves cupping around the shaft collect raindrops and dew. Researchers claim that the name of the plant is based on folk observation: people may have seen the hawk drinking from the moisture accumulated in the leaves. 



Pasque Flower

Black Pasque Flower (Pulsatilla pratensis ssp. nigricans)
Pasque flower, windflower, or meadow anemone are common names for the Pulsatilla, whose blooming is one of the first signs of spring. Members of the buttercup family, in Hungary we can find Pulsatilla grandis (leánykökörcsin), with its lavender flower, and Pulsatilla pratensis ssp. nigricans (fekete kökörcsin)
