Calathea Crotalifera (Marantaceae): Flower of the Day, Feb 4, 2019


Ha!!!  I finally identified this plant!!  It is a flower found in Hawaii and Brazil (and obviously Mexico, as that is where I bought it) named Calathea Crotalifera,  also known as Rattlesnake Ginger. Strangely, it is a member of the mushroom family??? Hard to believe, but I read it on a horticultural site.   LWBUT, would you have known what it was??

Dahlia:Flower of the Day



 I guess I’m just going to keep posting pictures of this orange dahlia until I run out of angles. Yes, I do have a few more I haven’t presented, but I’ll give it a rest for awhile. This is what Christmas looks like in Mexico!  It’s orange!!!

IMG_8467IMG_8463These huge and incredible blooms were almost obscured by the leaves of a monstrous tree on the Lake Chapala Society grounds. I had to get under them to photograph them as they hang straight down.  I have no idea what the name of the tree is and in the past have just caught them after the flowers all dry up and turn brown.  Thanks, Jessica, for pointing them out!
