Epilobio: Generalities

The term Epilobio derives from the Greek words epi = above and lobos = pod, just to signify the particular position of the Epilobium flower, which actually grows on the seed pod. To this peculiarity of the plant is also linked the symbolic value to the same associated, or that of challenge; the practically "unreal" position of the flower has in fact been interpreted as a completely arduous undertaking, hardly comparable to any other. Hence the concept of challenge in trying to approach such perfection. It is also worth noting the delicate fragrance of the flowers and leaves of the plant, especially if crushed.
