The Reveal.

Time after time nature continues to impress me. The bud of Leucospermum is not just a single flower... its a composite bloom made of many flowers. 

Each one of those peach-colored stalks is a single pistil of an individual flower. When fully opened, this beauty's a stunner.

This stunning, multi-colored corn is real and edible, and its seeds are now in high demand. It's a good thing someone spent time saving the seeds over the generations when the variety was out of our collective consciousness. http://goo.gl/HO2RJo
