What’s in a Name?

What's in a Name?

The German name translates as “little stepmother”. I never wondered about it until I took this photo. Apparently it has to do with the order of the petals, with the lowest and biggest being the stepmother, overlaying the 2 sideways petals (the daughters), which in turn partly cover the 2 top petals (the stepdaughters). Go figure…
