I am starting my blogging week with a floral photo. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite flowers in my garden. It is known as ‘Marvel of Peru’. It is literally a marvelous flower.
Did you know?
- It comes in variety of colors on the same plant.
- This one is also known as Mirabilis jalapa, Four o’clock flower.
- The flowers are not formed from petals.
- Petals are a pigmented modification of the calyx.
- The flowers are used in food coloring.
I wish everyone a bright and cheerful week ahead! 🙂
Can not end the post without resharing some of previous uploads of this beauty.
