I took this photo at the Houston Arboretum and have no idea what this flower is, but it is an amazing beauty. Please comment and share the name if you know it.

      The Houston Arboretum is totally wild and natural. There are some cards, but many plants and animals are not labeled. One must seek and fin the answers.

        it makes you wish there was an app that would allow you to take a picture of something and it would identify what it is. unfortunately, you’re going to have to bring that picture to a gardening store and ask someone there. haha.

  3. Physostegia virginiana (obedient plant or false dragonheadt), I think. Google its images to confirm it.
