Photo of the Week

I recently spent a day at Olbrich Botanical Gardens, soaking up lots of sunshine, plants and color. There was such a wonderful variety of trees, shrubs, flowers, statues, and structures to admire so I took lots of photos. This photo is one of my favorites.

The flower is called a Celosia Intenz, thanks to my mom for helping identify it for me.

I especially love the color but also the shape of the flower stem. It normally grows in zone 10 climate. Since I live in zone 4-5, this is an annual, which grows well in full sun and adds great height and texture to containers.
