Hedge-turner!... Beautiful all the way!!
I always like the contrasts it makes. Here it is white large bracts & the little red flower


Putting now the pronunciation and meaning of glabrata:
GLAB-rah-tuh -- somewhat smooth
I refer Dave's Botanary for finding pronunciation and meaning of the binomials.
