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 36:

Ivy-Leaved Toadflax, Kenilworth Ivy, Climbing Sailor, Colisseum Ivy, Devil's Ribbon

Cymbalaria muralis

A flowering plant native to Mediterranean Europe and widely naturalised elsewhere. It spreads quickly, growing up to 5cm tall—it commonly grows in rock and wall crevices, and along footpaths. The leaves are evergreen, rounded to heart-shaped, 2.5-5cm long and wide, three-seven lobed, alternating on thin stems. The flowers are very small, similar in shape to snapdragon.

A plant with many names! Found creeping over stones at the back of the house.
