Things that bloom in December, Part 2
I've had my eye on this red hot poker plant all week, photographing it every morning. I "discovered" it last January, and posted a photo of it in really amazing light. I never found light like that this week, but at least this photo shows the plant in full bloom; in the January photo the plant was definitely past its prime! The color on the plant is so intense. I'm really amazed that I never noticed it before last winter! It's a winter only plant; during the summer months it just looks like a boring clump of tall grass. Definitely a December beauty!
