I have a bit of a challenge for you. We have a flower that we planted mid-summer in our front garden…it was received as a gift. Recently (mid-October), it has started to bloom. I have been taking photos of this pretty amazing process, but have no idea what this flower is called. If you take a look at the photos below, I think you will agree that this flower definately has some potential. We would like to purchase some more of them, if only I knew what it was. I think it would be a great way to keep some color in the garden during the fall.
I took photos of all the stages of bloom. There is another bud ready to pop and its color is a brighter yellow, instead of the orangish above. The leaves are somewhat purple / maroon with a green underside. Any help would be much appreciated.
PS – Just a side note…if you want to see some great photos of flowers, visit this site. Geez, and I thought my pictures were the bomb diggity.
