Wander around my garden at the moment and your eye will be drawn way up into the sky.
Siler's tuberose, Manfreda sileri, is in flower and the flowers are borne on a stem over 6' tall. The plant is native to south Texas.
The stamens are neatly packed inside of the perianth lobes just waiting to burst forth.
At ground level the plant has long strappy pale green leaves splattered with brown spots. An interesting feature plant in the landscape.
