RE: Botany Quiz
No it is not a saxifrage. It is from an entirely different division of the plant kingdom.

DAmn, the Osweoian taxonomy only recognises these branches:

* Edible.
* Weeds.
* Trees.
* Plants belonging to the Emperor.

You can rule out these as well:

Embalmed
Tame
Suckling pigs
Sirens
Fabulous
Stray dogs
Those that are included in this classification
Those that tremble as if they were mad
Innumerable ones
Those drawn with a very fine camel hair brush

You will no doubt be relieved to know that this equally valid traditional system is being strongly promoted by the People´s Glorious Republik:

That's asplenium ruta-muraria, English name wall rue. In German we call it Mauerraute or Mauer-Streifenfarn, formerly Eselsfarn or Stoanneidkraut (in Lower Austria). It used to be used a medicinal plant and was fed to cattle to protect it from getting bewitched.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

So I guess it is my turn now.

This one's probably a tougher one for Europeans, so let them try first.

Ok, I'll be quiet, except to note that the fruit is one that only a mastodon could love. Fortunately for its survival as a species, humans have found some use for its wood.
