Welcome to the “Plants worldwide” blog page!

My idea with this blog page is to show exciting examples of how beautiful and special plants are, and sometimes how humans use and benefit from them. Follow this blog page to be inspired by plants through the texts, photos and videos. In addition to writing blog texts myself, I invite friends and colleagues to use this blog page to tell everyone about their favourite plants, and explain what it is that makes these plants so special to them. Unlike many other bloggers, I do not earn any money with the blog.

If you like my blog, please share it among your friends and colleagues.

Last but not least, I would like to encourage you to visit this webpage (in German and English) of Hubert Salzburger, who lives in Tyrol (Austria) and who is equally passionate about plants AND who takes stunning photographs.  Every month, Hubert publishes a plant portrait, and he also keeps a diary with anything else that attracts his botanical attention.

There, we mightContinue reading “The Ordeal bean”

Amborella trichopoda

I am always fascinated to see plant species which feature on postage stamps. A great example is a stamp, issued in 2012 by the postal service of New Caledonia, a French overseas territory in the south-west Pacific, featuring Amborella trichopoda. What a brilliant choice! Amborella trichopoda Baill. is unique in multiple respects. It is theContinue reading “Amborella trichopoda”
