    Default Aporum distichum

    I was in my garden playing around with my new macro lens, and decided to snap a test shot
    of this one. I love this one... its always in flower, however, the blooms are quite tiny compared
    to the plant.

    Great! The lens really captures the color and texture of the blooms -- they are about 1/4"?

    Thanks Mike... the plant itself is about 2-2.5 ft long.... I havent actually measured the flowers but i think 1/4" sounds about right.
