Interesting plant and the flowers look like single yellow wild roses,...I think the Bloom of the day forum is educational. "Lets see what new plant they are showing today I've never seen before!"

How right you are , David. I have been introduced to so many new plants here on the BOTD. George you have some interesting photos love this beauty! I see the photo was taken at the Helsinki Botanical Garden (Kasvitieteellinen puutarha). You have some other plants in the Plantfiles from the Botanical Garden that are interesting.

Wow, thank's ! Great hearing from ye'all! GardenGuyKin that conservatory is quite noticeable, though it's not that lavish as the Royal botanical garden at Kew, London. But it's just the best thing I always try to visit when in Helsinki.
