The reflection of British wildflowers in emotions.
Xanthoceras sorbifolium. Xenophobic. (Intolerant)
I couldn't find a British wildflower beginning with X, so I turned to a species Xanthoceras which is native to Northern China where it grows up to 8m tall. The genus name means yellow horn. The species name refers to the leaves, similar to those of Rowans(Sorbus). The leaves, flowers, and seeds of yellowhorn are all edible, which makes it a good contender to include in the herbal remedies and natural food list I've been featuring.
If a person is Xenophobic, they exhibit a fear and hatred of strangers or foreigners or of anything that is strange or foreign. The foreign-born population of the United Kingdom includes immigrants from a wide range of countries who are resident in the United Kingdom—the biggest melting pot of nations in modern times. Some of the natives are extremely Xenophobic towards the newcomers, despite their contribution to the culture and economy.
In 2010, there were 19 foreign-born groups that consisted of at least 100,000 individuals residing in the UK. People originate from Australia, Bangladesh, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Jamaica, Kenya, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Republic of Ireland, Somalia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uganda, United States and Zimbabwe. The Chinese restaurant vies in popularity with the Indian, adding their food specialties to the normal British cuisine. The same Xenophobic individuals gladly eat foreign food.
