Not the Arethusa Dairy Farm…

But arethusa, the orchid, also known as Dragon’s Mouth or Swamp Pink.

Then what about argillaceous? That is something that resembles or contains clay. The word itself sounds like something awesome, as does anything ending in ous. Yummy.

How about an argillaceous arethusa? Fire up the kiln for the Waterer!
