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.

Here are two more stamps from Ireland's eleventh definitive series (native wild flowers). The one euro stamp (Hib #D304, Sc #1654) depicts common foxglove (Digitalis purpurea). This stamp was issued on February 20, 2006. Regarding foxglove, wikipedia says, "The use of Digitalis purpurea extract containing cardiac glycosides for the treatment of heart conditions was first described in the English-speaking medical literature by William Withering in 1785, which is considered the beginning of modern therapeutics."

The two euro stamp (Hib #D305, Sc #1568) shows lords-and-ladies (Arum maculatum), including its poisonous red berries.

On January 25, 2010 Finland issued this oddly-shaped, die-cut booklet stamp (Sc #1346) depicting a catsfoot (Antennaria dioica). 700,000 of the booklets of 10 were issued.

From wikipedia, "Antennaria dioica (mountain everlasting, stoloniferous toes, catsfoot, or cudweed) is an Eurasian and North American species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae."

Censored? Really? Is it offensive to cats?
