The Voynich Manuscript: Spanish Flag Lantana

Voynich Manuscript researcher Dana Scott has a really nice id for the plant on fol. 32r of the VMs - Lantana camara (common name Spanish Flag). The leaves match and the yellow petals that crown the flower are shown as detail on the drawing. Plus, I can imagine that the root seems to show striped flag (I used the Royal Banner of Aragon as example of striped flag with Lantana camara colors). I am adding Lantana camara as placeholder for fol. 32r on my list.
