Indian Shot Lily: FOTD June 4, 2020

IMG_6769

I decided I liked this plant with all its warts exposed. These ladies grow in profusion from large round black seeds hard enough to go through wood that were once used successfully as shot when troops ran out of ammunition. The next year the battlefield was covered in India Shot Lilies, thus giving them their name. What nature does with what we do to it…amazing. (Also called edible cannas.)

For Cee’s FOTD
