Action: from isolation. to communication

It is part of the primroses family and blooms in May and June in stagnant or slow-flowing waters, in ditches, in the marshes of northern Italy. It can reach 40 cm, blooms from April to July with five-petalled pink or purplish flowers with a yellow center, and spirally arranged around the leafless stem. The feather-shaped leaves remain below the surface of the water.

Shelfmark: it lives in the calm waters of a swamp or marsh, and this feature makes it unapproachable, difficult to collect, and animals are discouraged from feeding on it. The leaves remain completely under the surface of the water: what emerges are only the stem and the flowers, giving the impression of height. A stronger component of spirituality, interiority and depth is concentrated in aquatic plants. Think of the lotus, a plant symbolic of spirituality in ancient Egypt and oriental cultures, which grows in the mud producing wonderful flowers, the quintessence of purity and elevation to the higher levels of consciousness.

PERSONALITY OF THE PLANT: it isolates and feels different because it is the only plant in the system that is aquatic and does not need direct air or sun to develop. It is distant and difficult to take because it grows under 25 or 40 cm. below the water level. It does not get carried away by the current because it has a very strong root.
