Rosa roxburghii Chestnut Rose (Originally "Dog Rose")

I originally posted this elsewhere (but omitted to do so here) as "Dog Rose" but, having examined the fruit, I realise that this is Rosa roxburghii, the Chestnut Rose. It has characteristically spine fruits (hips), of which I will be posting images in a post of its own.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/125 at f11, hand-held, cloudy sky.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Ginger With A Twist

This is the Kahili Ginger Hedychium gardnerianum, the commonest ginger in cultivation as a houseplant or greenhouse plant. The inflorescence is a gift for stereo. However, I am featuring this particular plant for a special reason.

This one has a leaf stem tightly furled around the main stem. It has curled its way upwards and then partly back down again on the other side. The cause of this is a mystery. The plant was close to/touching the greenhouse glass but that would not cause this extreme of abnormal growth. Even looking closely at the plant in life, it is difficult to see exactly the shape of the dysfunctional growth.

The first image shows just the tip of this at the bottom of the frame (bottom, right of middle). I darkened that image to intensify the colour.

Olympus EM-1 (Aperture Priority), Lumix G Vario 14-45mm Aspherical, f8 at 38mm

I have much the same feeling towards insects that have failed to emerge cleanly and have a bent or malformed wing. They deserve our attention as much as the perfect. Several artists would only paint the imperfect flower.

But that is a beautiful plant and inflorescence. It reminds me of some of the orchid plants. Your garden has some treasures in.

Thanks, Peter,

Some Cannas and gingers have yet to flower this year, a concern with frost not far away. They have a degree of hardiness but are more vulnerable in their (ever-larger) pots. They will be under glass for the winter.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Found this in a tree in the garden today:






My flash rig wouldn't fit so I ended up using the tripod and a long exposure...

Not very elegant... (excuse the iPhone photos!)
