A shot in the conservatory's tropical section. I liked this plant for its interesting spirals and the variation in color.
Great capture of this interesting plant! Nice colours and texture...

We are all going to want to know what it is called, now ! What fascinating, frosty patterns it carries.

I'd none that plants employ Fibonacci sequence generated spirals in many places(Seeds on a sunflower, for example), but I have never, ever seen anything where the spiral is in the leaves!Fascinating!

I second CElliottUK's comment. Fascinating.

Good morning Don
The flower is very interesting and beautiful. The spiral-shaped, extending colors and details are excellent for expression. For that I give you 5 stars ***** Sorry, this plant is unknown to me, otherwise I would know the name. Today is cloudy and the outside view it may be that it's raining again. The outside temperature is 7.6 degrees Celsius plus. Today marks the beginning of Carnival in Cologne and surrounding areas. It could be fun again.
We wish a nice sunny day and all the best incl. your family and friends. Dear greetings Christel and Detlev

At first glance, I had the impression I was seeing a satellite image.

Don, that's a totally new one for me. I can't remember ever seeing this type of spiral patter and coloration before. Very interesting and well photographed.

I recognise this plant - it's a begonia.
That's just its general name: there are tons of variations...
11 Nov 2010 1:17pm

Natures patterns and designs are always amazing, this looks like a fancy cabbage.
12 Nov 2010 2:52am
that's quite hypnotic.. ;D

The close focus and straight on viewpoint turn these leaves into an abstract pattern worthy of a psychedelic poster (day-glo paint needed, however).
12 Nov 2010 4:28pm
That's a really cool plant!

Fascinating foliage with amazing detail!
