Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants in the Liliaceae, a plant family numbering several hundred species.
Lilium are one of the truly great garden plants for their flower forms, diversity, extended season of bloom, graceful stature, and reliable disposition. Their bulbs can be planted in spring for bloom the same year, or in fall for bloom the flowing year. The sequence of bloom begins in early summer with the colourful Asiatics, Martagon Lilies (also called Turk’s Cap Lilies), and pure white Lilium Candium, and then continues until late summer with other species lilies and three tall, fragrant groups: Orientals, Orienpets, and Trumpets.
Flowers are borne in racemes or umbels at the tip of the stem, with six petals spreading or reflexed, to give flowers varying form funnel shape to a “Turk’s cap”. The petals are free from each other, and bear a nectary at the base of each flower.

In pre-Christian times, it was associated with Hera (Juno), who, according to legend, suckled the baby Hercules. While she did this, a gush of milk spurted out, which arched through the sky to form the Milk Way. Wherever it fell in drops on the earth, the shining white lily grew. This flower, with its exquisitely beautiful flower shape and restrained colour, came to symbolise the purity for which the Mother of God was famed.

Is a genus of flowering plant in the violet family Violaceae. Viola are most often spring blooming with chasmogamous flowers with well-developed petals pollinated by insects. After flowering, fruit capsules are produced that split open by way of three valves. On drying, the capsules may eject seeds with considerable force to distances of several meters. The nutlike seeds have straight embryos, flat cotyledons, and soft fleshy endosperm that are oily. The seeds of some species have elaiosomes and are dispersed by ants.

The genus Trifolium consisting of about 300 species of plants in the leguminose pea family Fabaceae.
The clover plant has the ability to convert nitrogen into fertilizer using bacteria in its root system, practically eliminating the need for additional fertilization.
Sacred plant of the spring equinox: the drudges associate the tripartite form of its leaves to “Triskell”, the sacred wheel, emblem of the triple manifestation of spring; they used as a talisman against evil spirits. His three leaves represent the divine Triads, the Mystic Three and the threefold aspect of life as body, soul and spirit. Pliny the Elder tells in his writing that clover is a sacred and magical plant because “no snake touches her”, hence the belief that the plant could cure the bite.

Socratea Exorrhiza or Stilt Palm is a large species of monoecious palms native from Central America to the Amazon rainforest. They are sometimes called walking palms because of their prominent stilt-like roots. If the light is better on one side of the palm, the roots will grow into the lighted area and roots on the low light side tend to die off. Thus, the palm itself moves more into the light.
Further more the stilt roots allow the palm to “walk” away from the point of germination if another tree falls on the seedling and knocks it over. If such an event occurs then the palm produces new vertical roots and can then right itself, the original roots rotting away.
As interesting it would be to think that when no one is around trees can walk the rainforest floor…
Inspired by this plant I designed the trunk, the support base of the Herba in Motus, which is a table composed by three flower’s table bases interchangeable.

Is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae (Leguminosae) that originated in China. Wisteria Sinensis climb their stems in anti-clockwise direction as all of those plant native from the southern hemisphere (Wisteria Floribunda native from Japan twist and wind round in a clockwise direction). The flowers are white, violet or blue, produced on 15-20 cm racemes before the leaves emerge in spring. The flowers on each raceme open simultaneously before the foliage has expanded and have a distinctive fragrance. All part of the plant contains a glycoside called wisterin which is toxic if ingested. Flora records indicate wisteria has been known to live up to 100years and even older. It’s long-life bestows the symbolic meaning of immortality and longevity to the wisteria.
