Artist's Description

A relative of the daisy, this plant is native to America. It was introduced to the British Isles in 1871, and has now spread everywhere.

Pineappleweed is edible and has many medicinal uses. This plant is also said to be an effective insect repellent if rubbed on the skin.

The Manx name for this flower is “lus ny h-uhlley”, which means “plant of stackyard”. This plant prefers compact soil, so it is often found near footpaths and tracks.
