Pixie Flowers


Pixie flowers are small flowering ground cover. The plant itself is a creeping vine that can cover the side of a building like an ivy.

Pixie flowers are small flowering ground cover. The plant itself is a creeping vine that can cover the side of a building like an ivy. The leaves are broad and waxy to the touch, thick and dark green. The plant is slightly resistant to fire so some villages in its native habitat will encourage the plant to grow over their homes as a fire retardant. This is really more of a cosmetic matter than actual protection.

The plant gains its name from its flowers. During the spring, and early summer, it produces a prolific display of flowers in a riot of colors. One plant can have white, blue, red, purple, yellow, and orange blossoms. The flowers are iridescent in nature, making them very bright and hard not to notice during the daytime. At night, they shimmer and sparkle. The petals of the flower are asymetrical, with two petals drooping low into faux legs, while the upper petals unfold to resemble perhaps the wings of a butterfly.

In some regions, it is called a butterfly Vine rather than Pixie Flower. during the fall it produces hard seed pods that are neither poisonous, nor very nutritious. The pods are carried away by wind and water, and under extreme circumstances will open.

Additional Information
Herbalists and plant lovers refer to the seeds as Pixie eggs.

It is a great fantasy plant. Just enough oddness to be a "fantasy plant" yet balanced enough not to be somewhat realistic. The measure of a great wimsical flora is if we could create a psuedo article for it in Sunset, Better Homes and Gardens, or National Geographic, and you would buy that it is a real plant.

Nice thing.

And you know that if a famine comes (and there were MANY in history), knowledge of things that are at least barely edible is very important.

A nice description good for putting in any setting. I like the mild flame retardant aspect.

Ready for use and realistic in a strange way.

Asclepius' flies are similar in size to the ordinary housefly, but they are white, with crimson eyes (ugly little creatures). Unlike most flies, however, they are not diseased, in fact their remarkable immune system contains agents which tackle even human illnesses. This is the source of their white colouring also. The standard technique for capturing them, to use their juices, is to tempt one onto the palm of one's hand and then to quickly wring your palms, then rub the mush onto the afflicted area. This is not for the squeamish, but has definite healing possibilities.
