On a recent trip to the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, I photographed some lovely plants.
There is always something in bloom at the Arboretum. The ‘Now Showing’ section on their website features some of the plants currently in bloom, but never everything that looks great. Click on photos for a description and larger image.
The genus Eucomis includes some of my favorite plants.
This Gloriosa Lily is really cool.
This Red Yucca towered over my head with its arching flower stalks.
Here are some non-flower images. There’s a lot more to gardens than flowers, so keep an eye out for interesting fruits, seeds and bark.
