Name That Bud #7


I apologize!!! I FORGOT to announce the winner of our contest (and the answer to this “Name That Bud.”

So, without further ado… (drum roll, please!)

The winner is:

Daisy Thompson!

Daisy posted her guess (WRONG! :0) & shared the post – which qualified her entry. (See how easy it was ? YOU could have won!) And, since no one else satisfied the minimum requirements, her’s was the only entry and wins by default. 🙂

Now, what plant is it? Well, this was a really hard one unless you have grown the plant and spent a good bit of time watching it. When I told my wife Viv (who planted and raised the plant) the answer, she argued that I had made a mistake! But I checked and double-checked to assure that it was right. And, of course, I WAS right! 😛

Now, where was I? Oh, yes, I was going to tell you what the bud really is….

Here is a picture of the mature bloom where you can see the “globe” after it has matured.

We have more pictures in our previous article on this plant which can be found here.
