An Autumn Bloomer

When other flowers are past their prime, the flamingo purple feather (celosia spicata) is an annual plant that keeps on blooming until mid-fall. Apparently it’s edible and even used for medicinal purposes in some parts of the world. Photographed on October 19, 2014, at a local nursery.
