Thank you, scinde_dawk. As a keen collector of Laos stamps, I have all flower sets issued by this country including the earlier from the period of the Kingdom (1952-75). Here is one of them issued on May 17, 1974:

Blue pea vine (Clitoria ternatea)**
Designer: Ky Phungchaleun, Engraver: Jacky Larrivière:

Water Lily (Nymphaea lotus)
Designer: Phanorath, Engraver: Claude Jumelet:

Cotton Tree (Bombax ceiba)
Designer: Ky Phungchaleun, Engraver: Didier Guedron:

Common Swamp Pitcher (Nepenthes phillamphora)
Designer: Ky Phungchaleun, Engraver: Didier Guedron:


**The flower on the 30K stamp is described by mistake as Eranthemum nervosum although the Clitoria ternatea is depicted.

Here is the 5 euro value (Hib.# D306) from Ireland's 2004-8 "Wild Flowers" definitive series. Stamp depicts the dog rose (Rosa canina). Stamp was issued on September 9, 2004.

From wikipedia, "Rosa canina, commonly known as the dog rose, is variable, climbing wild rose species native to Europe, northwest Africa, and western Asia. The fruit is noted for its high level of vitamin C, and is used to make syrup, tea, and marmalade."
