Flower of the Day: 18.06.2016 No idea, but pretty – It is a Potato Bush

unknown flowers

Another one of my photos from the local flower department of the supermarket. I had no idea when I took the photo what it is, and still do not know. It is very impressive: any ideas?

P.S. my online colleague Martha has informed that it is a potato bush which actually grows into a bush in the right climate and right part of the world. It seems to be an immigrant in Switzerland, stays in pots but should flower freely. I might even get one for my home. Thanks Martha.

    • Now that is very interesting. Your link was not working for me, but I found another. It seems they grow into real bushes in the right places, but in Switzerland they remain in pots and more inside than outside, especially during the Winter months. I am now interested – shall I get one?

      • 🙂 If you like it! There was a similar plant that grew wild in the wetter places in the chaparral where I used to hike. I had one in my garden for a while in San Diego, too. Easy to care for plant.
