The Latin Series: B is for Borealis

Jovibarba 'Borealis'
Do you know that this past few weeks has witnessed some particularly spectacular Aurora Borealis Displays in the far north? It is apparently due to a solar storm that has been showering our atmosphere recently. The Aurora Borealis is only visible in the north and likewise ‘borealis’ in plant nomenclature refers to northern plants – or plant from Northern areas. Given the high latitudes, it can generally be assumed that ‘borealis’ plants are pretty hardy. Care to see a few borealis plant? Visit my B is for Borealis board on Pinterest.

Image above of Jovibarba ‘Borealis’ is from Simply Succulents.  And the video below is a fascinating look at the dancing light of the most recent Aurora Borealis over Birtavarre, Norway.
