Bohemia Ecological Preserve

Scarlet Pimpernel flowers are open only when the sun shines. This habit of closing in dull weather has given the plant the name "poor man's weather-glass." It is a non-native that can cause minor dermatitis - or act as a facial peel agent. This plant once had a great reputation in medicine, and was used as a universal panacea. "No heart can think, no tongue can tell, The virtues of the Pimpernel." Formerly Primrose Family now Murcinaceae Family.
