Pacific Plumes

If you haven’t notice I have long love affair with purple wildflowers. It goes back to my country roots on our centennial family farm. My grandmother planted honeysuckle, lilacs, and hyacinths along the driveway up to the farmhouse.   I had my first encounter with these stunning pacific plumes at The Inn at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach.

I couldn’t past them by without a stopping to take several photographs.  Later, I saw them in Monterey Bay at the Pier. Doesn’t anyone happen to know their name? I really need some kind of flora travel guidebook to a “translate” flowers and trees!

      LOL, Felicia aren’t they. Gosh I would love plant in my garden if they would grow here!

  2. No idea what they are but they are magnificent.

  3. I think it’s name is Pride of Medeira. They are plentiful here in California. For the longest time my husband and I searched for the name of this plant so that we could buy it. I still have it in my garden.

      Judee, I would love to have them grow here. Hydrangeas are one of my favorites too, the purple ones are hard to come by.
