Photo of the day

On my walk to Kizilay I came across these plants. They look like heather but in many vibrant colors. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a closeup.  Any idea of what it is?  Does heather come in so many colors?

  1. Hey T!

    Indeed they do! As the plant comes in so many different colors picking out the one for your garden can be quite an exercise in decision making.

  2. . . impossible to say what they are without a closer shot. Could be that they have sprayed the sections in the same way that they colour spray day-old chicks in the market.

  3. I will have to go back. The ground definitely was not sprayed. But the blue and the flourescent green/yellow were so odd to me . . . I thought I would pass by on my way home, but alas, my arthritis required I bus it back to the hood.

  4. I’ve not seen heather in any of those colors.

  5. I think its painted or tinted Terry. the colors are too perfect We do get heather that is stem-dyed, but they do that after it is cut
