Thanks Bernie! I just love these heirloom Arikaras. The flower head is 1 foot across. Just huge!

Karen - that flower (and plant) is incredible! Beautiful AND blocks out the sun! Whew! (I want one!)

I also wanted to let you know I put a link to your blog on my latest post. I was absorbing the fact that I've been blogging since February, and life in the 'Blogosphere' - I referred to blogs that inspire me! Check it out and let me know what you think? :D --Shyrlene

Shyrlene, it still amazes me that from a tiny seed planted in May, these huge flowers can grow in such a short time!
I'd be happy to share some seeds with you. If I can grow them, anyone can. This photo was taken by me at the Stanhope Museum, where I take care of the heritage garden. It gets full sun from dawn 'til dusk, which really helps, but they'd still grow with well with 6 hours+ of full sun. But if you want to email me your address, I'll pop some seeds in the mail for you.

And thanks so much for putting a link on your blog. That's really great and I totally appreciate it.
I've put your link here too in my favourites! I love the name of your blog! Perfect!
Enjoy your week, and thanks again,
K

There is a need to flower and plant more trees.The nature which is getting an distant option and trees cut down to make place for more homes is increasing the pollution levels of the earth.
