Here is our 15th “Name That Bud” photo:
This is one of my favorite flowers. It blooms from spring to frost except during the extreme hot weather. It is also a self-seeder that grows to about six feet.. Do you recognize it now? Can you Name That Bud?
I will post the name of the plant (here) later today (after a break)…
No winner today…
The bud is:
Spider Flower (CLEOME HASSLERIANA)
Here are some photos of the blooms before the frost got to them. 🙁
