The reflection of British wildflowers in emotions.
Yellow Rattle. Youthful.
This plant is unusual in that it is partially parasitic on other plants. The Yellow Rattles' roots withdraw sustenance from their neighbors. Rhinanthus Minor grows in wet meadows and mashes. The hooded flowers are born in the axils of the upper leaves Brown sepals are fused together to form an inflated tube of yellow petals. The common name comes because the plant rattles in the wind when mature and dry.
Half the world's population is under twenty five years. A youthful population allows a country to build an educated and civilized community, provides a growing market for manufactured products and provides a large tax base to support the aging population. However, a youthful population strains education and health-care services, and may limit the number of jobs in the future. When rural areas are no longer able to support the people living there, urban areas will be undated with extra population, leading to shanty-towns in places with a growing youthful population like Brazil, China, Gambia, and India.
Proverb: Youth is wasted on the young.
