SOOC Sunday

My friend Jan hosts "Straight Out of the Camera" Sunday meme.

False Spirea/Feather Flower

These flowers grow near the Admin building where I teach at Queensborough Community College in Bayside Queens.

These fluffy spikes on ferny foliage bloom in June and July. Varieties vary in size, shape, bloom color, bloom time and leaf color. The flower heads last longer if they are planted to avoid the afternoon sun. Some have green leaves, others bronze, some are shiny while others have a matte finish. A great plant for color and texture in the shade garden!

Go on over to Murrieta 365 for other participants.
