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 32:

Suckling Clover

Botanical name: Trifolium dubium
Family name: Fabaceae

A closer look at this plant which I found had rapidly overtaken a flowerpot of decaying marigolds during the winter months.

‘Suckling clover is smaller in size than many of the other clover species found within New Zealand. It is a winter annual, so it mainly germinates in autumn, grows through the winter then flowers in spring, produces its seeds and dies off as the soil dries out in early summer.’
