This shrimp plant is blooming right next to my back door.

Ours looked all dried out. They must like N. Fla better than the South.

I never heard of a shrimp plant. It looks nice and I wonder if it attracts a lot of insects?

I've never heard of a shrimp plant before, it's pretty!

Like Abe, I have never heard of a shrimp plant. It looks very interesting, a little bit like a bleeding heart. It is quite striking.

I've never heard or seen of a shrimp plant either. It is pretty.

Boy, do I feel dumb! I live in north central Florida and have never heard of this plant before, either. Maybe I've seen them but didn't know what they were.

It's very beautiful...I shall have to look for one in our local nursery!

a very nice flower indeed. I like your cake from yesterday also. And yes, you will need to plan a trip back the arizona to enjoy the sites. I am glad you enjoyed the photos on my site. Today I have an unique photo of Chihuly glass art that changes color at a certain time of the day based on the sun's rays.

I guess I'm just used to seeing these because my Dad had them in our yard in Jacksonville Beach when I was growing up. In fact, that's where I got the cutting for this one. They are very easy to grow and bloom like crazy! I don't think they attract too many insects, but my hummingbirds like them.

I am pretty good on plantlife but like Abe this is a new one to me!

Tash said...

That is a very appropriate name for the plant - it's very pretty. Just hope it does not end up in the gumbo.

My wife has one of these on the kitchen window sill. We purchased it at the conservatory I posted about recently. They are neat.

Just lovely!

I would love to have one of those Lois. And I don't think I have seen this plant ever. Unique and beautiful. Oh, how I love flowers and plants in general.

Very unusual and pretty, and I think it does look kind of like shrimp!
