Carl Ludwig Philipp Zeyher

Moraea vegeta

Moraea vegeta

It was in collaboration with the German (ex-)gardener Carl Ludwig Philipp Zeyher (1799-1858) that Ecklon did most of his collections. Even if we today attribute many of their collections to both of them, they often traveled without each others company. On this specimen we can see two labels… See More, the left in the hand of Zeyher (thin ink and a quick but easily read handwriting), and the right in the hand of Ecklon (thicker ink and rounder letters). They both wrote in German and using the old Kurrentschrift or Alte Deutsche Schrift. The two labels give two different localities (Zeyher’s give Tigerberg, and Ecklon’s give Groene Berg; Ecklon’s label is further dated to the year 1826, three years prior to their collaborations).
