Artist's Description

This flower can be found in hedgerows all over the island. The island is also home to several other varieties of vetch, but Bush Vetch is the most common.

Vetch was once boiled to make a remedy for measles and smallpox.

The Manx name for this flower is “Pishyr ny thammagyn”.
