I recently visited the San Diego Botanic Garden and photographed the flowers below. I love that garden for the variety of plants I can see there, but it really bugs me to realize only half of them seem to have a label. So I have no idea what the flowers below are. All I can say is, they’re puffy pinkish purple (mostly purple) flowers and their shrub leaves are so light green, they look almost white. This gives a very interesting background to the flowers. If you know what this plant with puffy purple flowers  is, please share in the comments section below. Enjoy!

    I’ve never seen flowers like that before – especially with white leaves. They make me think of fireworks or coral. I love that last really close up one!

      I wish I knew what it was called. I love that botanic garden but labeling only half the plants defeats the purpose of educating its visitors.

  3. Wow! These purple flowers are just gorgeous!
