365 of Me: 224/142

bloodflower

Today’s pic is of a lesser known annual we planted this year. We found it in the herbs section of a nursery back in the summer, though I do not know what medicinal purposes or herbal remedies it serves. It’s called a blood flower or tropical milkweed. We bought it just for the heck of it, but it has beautiful flowers right now and has grown quite tall, guarding one of our new trailing rose bushes from the rabbits.
