These gorgeous and unique flowers were spotted earlier at the Meijer's floral section of the store! This plant was full of flowers. They were stunning in colors and how they looked.
I had a hard time parting with these beautiful flowers! They are annual plant and sometimes known as Slipperwort or Pocketbook plant. Blooming usually takes late in late Fall and early summer. They also require sun to partial shade.
As gorgeous as they are, everything about them is poisonous; from seeds to the entire plant if ingested. Handling them could also cause skin irritation and allergic reaction!
With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.~~~Confucius~~~
