Skiatophytum tripolium (L.) L. Bolus

Tripolium; : latinisation of the ancient Greek plantname tripolion, which was applied for an Aster species, or -according others- to the present Statice sinuata L. The word may be derived from the Greek tri, three; polein, to return, change; in allusion to the 3-coloured flower heads (ray-flowers purple, violet; disflowers, yellow; top of involucral bracts red) of Aster tripolium L., or the during the flowering time blue, thereafter violet calyx and white corolla of Statice sinuata L.
