This plant appeared together with hope. It comes from the St. Petersburg Lopukhin Garden in Russia. The fight for this public garden, where the municipal government wanted to build a hotel of glass and concrete, lasted for twelve years. If they would have succeeded, only guests of the ‘cultural capital’, as St. Petersburg has been titled, would have been allowed to walk the grass and breathe the aroma of the garden.
The Memoria Proeliis is the most resistant plant of all those I have seen in my life.
I invite you to take your hat off and bow, in reverence before it.
