Chirita ‘Walkerae’ bloom

24 10 2011

Chirita ‘Walkerae’ bloom, photographed in the conservatory at the U.S. Botanic Garden this afternoon. Doesn’t the tubular part of the flower look like the torso and leg of a green lizard?!

Learn more about the genus Chirita from the site below by John Boggan from the Smithsonian Institute.
