The photographs I am sharing today came from The United States Botanic Garden in Washington DC. There you will also find flowers from all over. The one above is an hibiscus. The one below belongs to the ginger plant family, Curcuma Roscoeana.
This is called a Feather Plant.
This pretty pink one I don't really know what it is. I try to take photos of the identification as I go along, but I missed this one. If you know what it is, please let me know and I will come back and name it.
We found these larger than life models. You pressed a button and a recorded voice would tell you about a particular part of the plant. Fascinating!
