The Last Vacation Photos

Bee Balm… It Grows in Wisconsin too!

 My last set of pictures from vacation are these!  So many beautiful plants, including what looks like rhubarb on steroids show below.  The Gunnera manicata is also known as “The Fairy Umbrella” plant.  It has HUGE leaves which shade the very large flower spikes that grow beneath it.  It apparently is the invasive plant of Ireland and not desirable (but still impressive).

Bees LOVE the spikes of this vertical bloomer.
