Butterfly Ginger

Can you believe this exotic plant grows in Texas? Yes, it does. On a recent painting trip to our local botanical garden in Austin, I came across large Butterfly Ginger plants that were in full bloom. The flowers are hearty, but they are also delicate and fringy; and lots of fun to paint.

So gorgeous. I'm trying to imagine a bee approaching such a flower. I think it might faint with joy.
