My favorite Flower

Painted Tongue, Velvet Trumpet Flower of the Genus Solanacea, known as Salpiglossis












Salpiglossis belong to the nightshade family. They are closely related to the petunia and tobacco flower. Their open habit makes them so appealing. I don't know of another flower that blooms in so many different colors. From bright yellow to blue and purple and red and orange and to many shades in between to almost black.
Salpiglossis are a sensation in my garden. They never fail to be noticed. They make excellent cut flowers.
