100 Days Project

Jacinda: Inkweed

100 black ink drawings of common New Zealand garden weeds (plants found growing where they are not wanted). The drawings, made on A4 paper, will loosely depict the plants' essential characteristics. Where possible I will identify them using the Massey University Weed Database and other online sources. On completion I will output all the drawings as one large poster on photorag paper.

Day 100:

Freeway daisy

Osteospermum jucundum

Growing prolifically in gardens on our street. Filtched a couple from neighbouring garden where it is scrambling over the wall onto the pavement.

Weed no. 100 is a common garden escapee.

Now estabilished in the wild. Ray florets white on upper surface, bluish-mauve underneath. (Common Weeds of NZ)
