Macro Monday #16

(click to enlarge to full size)


I thought this might be the Flame Lily ( Gloriosa superba) before fully opened, but I am not so sure. Any ideas? In the glasshouse at RHS Wisley and definitely tropical.

(With the opening of my new Cornish blog I have decided to  abandon the 60mm macro site and will in future post macro images on the site I consider the most appropriate. )

      Do you know what it is?

  2. I have no idea what it is, but it’s certainly very pretty and unusual.

  3. I have no idea what it is, but I love the colours in the photo.

    Absolutely no idea, the stem looks like a climber, is it? how big and what shape is the whole plant?

    1. Heyjude says:

      Definitely a climber. Quite big if I remember rightly but this is going back to Wisley and the glasshouse in December.

    Beautiful flower! If it does not have a label I’m lost except for what I have planted myself. 🙂

    Awfully pretty Jude. Just realised you’re not turning up in my Reader because I wasn’t following you. Silly me! I shall follow devotedly henceforth xx
