This original illustration from the "Plants" series was commissioned by the Dictionary of Universal Natural History by the French botanist and geologist Charles Henry Dessalines d'Orbigny, who lived from 1806-1876.
The attached graphic shows the bead (Canna speciosa). It is a genus of plants from the monotypic family of Stemaceae (Cannaceae). They are widespread around the world grown as ornamental, usually as hybrid cultivars.
Perennials vary in height, from several dozen cm to usually 3 m, rarely even 5 m. They do not have a typical stem, its role is played by leaves rolled up at the base. Flower stems grow from the center of this false stem. Underground they have tuberous rhizomes of various sizes and shapes. Flowers gathered in apical inflorescence taller than the leaves. The flowers are asymmetrical. The three leaves of the outer whorl are permanent, green to red in color. Of the three leaves of the inner whorl, one is smaller, and all of them are fused at the base into a tube. The single stamen is flattened in plane and has a single anther on the edge. The remaining 5 stamens are reduced completely or develop as flaky mycobacteria, one usually large. The ovary is lower, three-chambered and topped with a lobed pistil neck with a papillary surface of the nevus. The flowers secrete nectar that attracts insects. Paciorecznik - poster
