Bartlett Arboretum Pictures

Unnamed Coleus.

Since I was out late last night here are a few pictures from my recent trip to the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford, Connecticut.

Classic Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia reginae) blooming the greenhouse.

I am not sure what this one is but it is a colorful plant that I have seen a couple of different times this year, any ideas?

Your photo of the coleus transforms this humble little plant into a regal being of the Stamford jungle! Don't know what that last plant is, but it sure is pretty.

That coleus is lovely. The last picture is of a Spanish Flag/ Firecracker Vine. I've had my eye on that for a while now. I love vines and this is has so many unique colors in it.

Thanks Sandy. You do have a way with words.

vanillalotus, thanks so much for the ID. This is a very cool plant that is so colorful that I will have to keep my eye out for it, too.
