The word "rosacea" originates in the late Nineteenth Century from the feminine Latin word "rosaceus" meaning "rose coloured."

The Rosaceae or rose family is a large family of plants, with about 3,000-4,000 species.


In colonial Melbourne traditional western foodstuffs were often in short supply.

Early settlers turned to many indigenous resources as substitutes.

Acaena was widely used as a substitute for tea.
