Heath Flask Botanical Art Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Art Print of the Flask Heath which was originally published in the Curtis Botanical Journal on June 01, 1795. This high quality print shows a funny looking flower with a single stem and several blooms which look like bottles with a bloom on the end. The Journal described this plant as thus - The flask heath receives its name from the shape of its flowers which resemble a flask or water bottle. This specimen was raised from seeds from the Cape, the flower is a short plant with many branches which have many flowers. The flowers are covered with a glutinous substance as to look varnished, this acts as an adhesive to catch ants and flies, which the flower evidently eats.
