Anybody know what this flower is is called? I took this picture about two years ago in the flower garden of a local Midwest newspaper columnist. The plant is bush-like, standing approx. 3 ft. high, and apparently does well in full sun. The spike-like bloom is 6-8″ long. The photo was taken in early September. (I knew its name when I took the photo, but, geez, that was over two years ago.)
I had this shot in my “Photos to Work On” file, and decided to use it to experiment with backgrounds, textures and blending modes. I like the way it turned out.
If there are any florists, horticulturists, Master Gardeners or backyard farmers out there that can identify this for me, I’d appreciate hearing from you. Please, no Latin names. Thanks.
