Flowers From A Hotel Garden

The hotel that we stayed in Amritsar, Punjab, had these pretty blooms attracting several bees and butterflies.  Moss verbena/Glandularia pulchella is a perennial herb originally from South America. The plant has lacy leaves and the flower spikes are dense. This must be one of the most attractive groundcovers.

Also in bloom were these small palm trees, maybe the dwarf variety. The palm trees were surrounded by different kinds of lantana, some of them with variegated leaves.

To see the most attractive blooms, check out Today’s Flowers. My thanks to the hosts of this wonderful meme.
