You never know what might catch your attention when you visit Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA with your camera in hand. This is one of the best travel destinations in the country if you enjoy plants and flowers.

 

Subhash Sharma  This 'Verbena bonariensis', 'Purpletop vervain', 'Clustertop vervain', 'Argentinian vervain' ,'Tall verbena', or 'Pretty verbena' is native to tropical South America where it grows throughout most of the warm regions, from Colombia and Brazil to Argentina and Chile. It's flowers, which appear in mid- to late summer, are very attractive to butterflies, and provide nectar for native bees and many beneficial garden insects.

Mr. Sharma is a Facebook friend from India. He now lives in Ireland and frequently comments on my photographs as I post them on Facebook.
