I have a thing for wild flowers and during our walks into the wild, I document every leaf, bud and flower which to most, would be noxious weeds. It has earned me the sobriquet ” Weed Paparazzi” .
Here is one of them , Tridax procumbens or Coat Buttons or Tridax daisy.
They have off-white petals with yellow centres.
I can imagine them embellishing a classic blue, denim button down dress. Would someone fashion buttons like them please!!!
Tridax procumbens has been in use for wound healing and as an anticoagulant, antifungal, and an insect repellent in India.
It is also used in Ayurvedic medicine for liver disorders, hepatoprotection, gastritis, and heartburn.
