The Voynich Botanical Plants

Folio 16v Back to Plant List
folio 16v

Folio 16v, Chrysanthemum plants, are native to Asia and Northeastern Europe. The photograph shown in Figure 16v was taken in Italy and is probably of a cultivated plant. I am showing it because I was struck by how closely it resembles the red flowers in Folio 16v. I have no idea of the identity of the blue flower. Folio 16v could also be ‘red’ yarrow, as shown in this Wikipedia photo.
