Ruby Tuesday

Looking through the photo archive, I was amazed at how much red there is in so many pictures.  Sometimes, it's just a flash but others are almost completely red.  Here's one that we took last fall at a local nursery...



Here's the information just in case you want one for your own garden.

I remember that there was 2 colour introductions last year but I never did see them in real life. I must say that this tempted me quite a bit. Maybe this year I'll get one of these.

What a lovely picture! But here's what's so funny! It looks just like the giant flower of lights that I posted today!! Mine with lights and yours is the real thing. That's so cool. Is an echinacia the same as a coneflower? This one is lovely, I might try to get some for our little flower bed. They sure could have picked out a prettier name then "Tomato Soup"!!Wonder who named it? Probably someone who loved tomato soup for lunch.

I love that rose name. That is exactly what tomato soup looks like. Great color and perfect name.

That is a beautiful flower and you took such a lovely photograph of it. I have never heard of them before, thanks for letting us know what it is called.
Have a nice week.

LOL. Love that they named it Tomato Soup!

Beautiful flower, and thanks for including the info, cos otherwise I wouldn't have recognised it. I take a tincture of this any tiem a cold is coming on, and it's better than any antibiotic.

Me again!
Stephanie, there's an award for you over at my place!

Very pretty! Up to now, I'd only seen the lavender/purple variety.
