Z Is For Zebra Plant

Zebra Plant

I have been going through my external hard drive to clean up my photo files, and still have quite a way to go. However, the process of moving, deleting, and merging the folders led me to these unique and amazing flower plant.

Extraordinary Zebra Plant Flowers
This was called Zebra Plant, (Calathea Zebrina), and was found at my local Conservatory. I took the photos on two different occasions, but they were not what I want, so in the folders they went until I came across them from sorting.

Purple Zebra Flowers
This zebra flower bloomed around June as I am a regular patron and haven't seen it at other times. It is a difficult flower to photograph as it was low on the ground, and there was never enough natural light around its home. Nevertheless, it is an extraordinary looking flower!

    Saying 'hello' via Alphabe- Thursday - mine for letter 'Z' @ ImagesByCW is about Zug, Switzerland

  16. I've not heard of this flower -- and am curious as to why it's called a Zebra plant. I'm thinking Artichoke Rose :)

  17. That one is super interesting! I've enjoyed your flower posts...


  18. Wow! Thanks for sharing...I haven't seen them as well. Really great photos.

    All t he best,

  19. Zebra plants are new to me.

    Zis is quite an interesting plant, though.

    It reminds me a bit of a flowering succulent but it appears by the leaves it is not.

    The color with low light would be hard to capture, but you did a great job!

    Thanks for linking.
