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 41:

Musky storksbill

Botanical name: Erodium moschatum
Family name: Geraniaceae

Found growing prolifically on grass verges of nearby Haig Ave while walking thismorning.

Musky storksbill can be a problem both in turf and pastures. In turf, it forms large, unsightly rosettes. As they can be seen from quite some distance away, most green-keepers with any pride will be keen to get rid of them. (Massy Uni Weeds Database)
