The beautiful flower in my garden finally opened up yesterday. The corms came from a S. African plant that was sent by some ones momma...
The plant leaves come up looking like three sharp swords, on top you will find the bloom.
The flower has 6 petals. The color is a beautiful reddish/orange, with a black band 'round the inside, that goes up the petals, like haphazard brush strokes, and the throat, from the black band down onto the center of the bloom, is yellow.
I got these little ones in a special trade and they came all the way down from Duluth, Minn...talking about a HOME RUN.
The pics that i've seen of the watsonias do not show this color. what do i have? Cannot post pic. No usb in my old 'puter..
