Purple Loosestrife has flowers that are both elegant and beautiful, and the wetland habitat of the plant can show a delicate and colourful grandeur all of its own. To enhance the beauty of purple loosestrife, Moorcroft Pottery designer Kerry Goodwin added the delicate brimstone butterfly.
The brimstone is attracted to plants in wetland areas. In winter, the brimstone travels to woodlands, but in spring returns to wetlands such as RSPB Leighton Moss to breed and lay eggs. Females have pale greenish-white wings, while males have brighter yellow. One may be found on each side of Kerry’s striking 12-inch vase, fluttering around the purple loosestrife.
The Purple Loosestrife vase comes in a limited edition of 20.
