Chinese Hat Plant, FOTD July 19, 2019

Click on flowers to enlarge.

Bob from the Love Will Bring Us Together blog identified this plant for me.  Here is his information:

Holmskioldia Sanguinea Retz commonly called the Chinese hat plant, cup-and-saucer-plant or Mandarin’s hat!. It’s a member of the Mint family ( Lamiaceae ) and is the only species in the genus Holmskioldia!

See Bob’s blog HERE and if you have a plant you can’t identify, he has a section of his blog to report it in and he’s a super plant sleuth.  I’ve never found one he couldn’t identify.

          ThereSa from Culture Shocks and Vic from TheChrisThomasfiles both seek me out and i randomly supply flower details for a few others (even Cee on the odd occasion!)

        Awww Shucks! 😊

        It’s a very nice ( and rare these days) feeling to be appreciated for what you do or are. 🙂 Thank you Judy.

        I have a Top-Secret background… i come from a need-to-know basis… that is I have a strong need to find the answers to all kinds of things! 😉

        Glad i could help!

              Yesterday I landed on my knee, but no permanent injuries. I seem to be accident-prone recently. A stabbed thumb, a cut finger, a broken tooth and now a skinned knee all within a 24 hour period. Definitely I lack the grace of a cat.
