More fruit-colored tubular flowers from the Tropical High Elevation House. All of our tropical blueberries produce flowers that look good enough to eat, Cavendishia macrantha included. I love the two-tone melon/honeydew colored flowers. They are followed by berries that are rich in anti-oxidants.
And a completely unrelated plant, a bromeliad, possibly a Guzmania,with tubular olive flowers. The flowers arise from translucent pink bracts.
Here's a look at the entire plant, with its narrow linear leaves, glossy red stem and long internodes. Quite striking.
The Fuqua Orchid Center showcases the Atlanta Botanical Garden's large and diverse collection of orchids. Orchids are exhibited year round in the 16,000 sq. ft. display space, consisting of landscaped areas and seasonal displays. Our spring orchid extravaganza, ORCHIDdaze, runs for ten weeks in Feb, March and April.
