When I hear of plantain lilies I think of plantains! But they don't actually have banana type fruits do they?

I wonder why they're called plantain.

Perhaps it's the shape of the leaves?  Cheesy

{a} Globe Amaranth, also known as Margeurite
{b} flower colors vary but  purple blooms are most notable
{c} St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
 Blooms make wonderful deep purple tea that is caffeine free but still energizing.
The association between St. Margaret Mary Alacoque  and this flower may be unique to
The island of St. Lucia where they have a festival celebrating this flower on her feast day.

{A} Holly
{B} An evergreen, with small sharp and shiny leaves, with bright red berries.
{C} Holly blooms during Christmastime.

"The ilex or holly, and the ivy, both evergreen plants are traditional Christmas symbols: the holly for part of the same reason as the Glastonbury Rose is, because it represents the Crown of Thorns that the Savior will wear during His Passion. The holly has little sharp points all around its edges, much like a thorn and one can easily prick a finger by touching the leaf carelessly. The berries represent the drops of Blood He shed. Moreover, the holly is held by tradition to be of the same plant as the wood of the Cross was said to come from. During Advent and Christmas Christians acknowledge the need for a Savior and holly reminds them of this: the holly bough is one of St. John the Baptist's symbols; the Saint heralded our Lord's coming as Isaiah did in the Old Testament.

The ivy is so perennially green, that it symbolizes fidelity and immortality or eternal life in Christ. In addition, the ivy clings to its support as it grows, which symbolizes the Catholic's attachment and undying affection for his merciful Savior."

{A} Common star of Bethlehem
{B} Star shaped white flowers, reminding one of the star that guided the magi to Our Lord.
{C} The flower on the calendar for the feast of the Epiphany and St. Nilammon, Hermit

'And behold the star which they had seen in the East, went before them, until it came and stood over, where the child was. And seeing the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy. And entering into the house, they found the child with MARY his mother, and falling down adored him: and opening their treasures, they offered to him gifts: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.'
