    This is an amazing coincidence. I was recently in Tahiti and saw this plant for the first time. I had no idea what it was or how to begin finding out the name. And here it is! Thanks for an always informative and beautiful daily photo.

    Patricia – I don’t deserve all the credit. Without contributions from around the world, like today’s from Martin, BPotD would certainly be less than it is.

    Thanks so much for selecting one of our photos for Photo of the Day for November 22nd. It’s a great honor. I have been subscribing to your RSS feed for over a year, and have looked at all the photos you have posted in that time.
    By the way, I’m from South Carolina — a lot of our photos are from Southern California. We have a grandson there.
    Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

    Paula – the same thing has happened to me, too! I’ve seen a flower, wondered how on earth I would be able to find it, and then a few days later it appeared here!

    Just returned from Antique Rose Emporium, Independence,TX where I saw it growing this weekend ,8-’07,in their garden. Purchased this plant from them and am so excited about it’s tremendous show in the garden. Hope to container this one, to move it forward on the patio while in bloom. Greenhouse protect in the winter. Good idea, anyone? Or should I just plant it in my zone 9 S.E. TX?
    Must be a hit with many. A.R.E. had only one left after my purchase. Carole
