Artistic photo does justice for this beautiful flowering plant. One of my favorites and easy to grow even in Texas hot summers. Haven't planted any in a while but will be putting some in this year in areas that I have a harder time getting other more delicate flowers to thrive in Texas summers. They also pop up in some grassy areas too! Thanks for the photo. Beautiful!
