THE HANGING HORN

The Hanging Horn

Image description:

The Hanging Horn is a flower that would stand almost one ped high erect, but hangs (hence its name) almost to the ground. Its leaves surround the base of the flower in a whorl and are oval shaped with deep veins with a length of 12 to 14 cm. The locals sometimes use this plant to ward off harmful animals by hanging the crushed plant in a thin net above their doors. Picture drawn by Daie.
