Large-flowered Triteleia ~ Triteleia grandiflora


  1. I had no idea there was so much variety in the wildflowers of your area.

    • I was amazed when I actually counted the number of wildflower species that I have photographed in just this small area. Over 200 and I’m sure there are still many that I have missed. Who’d a thunk it!

  3. Hi Montucky, Spectacular photo of the purple blossoms. Beautiful. They remind me a tiny bit of Peter Pan Agapanthus landscaping plants. Have a wonderful Thursday tomorrow!

    • I was not familiar with that plant and so had to look it up. I see what you mean about the similarity. They are both in the lily family too.

  4. That’s another one that I wish grew here. That’s a beautiful color!

    • Yes, I think it’s a pretty color too. It is different enough that you can notice it at a great distance, just because of that shade of blue.

  5. So lovely, Terry.
    Spring is certainly a wonderful time of year over your side of the world.

    • Thanks Vicki. Our winters can be rather harsh, but nature makes up for it with a real big flower celebration in spring and summer.

  6. They are very attractive in the way some blossoms are open and others are pointing upwards. Unusual and beautiful. I’m enjoying the variety of wildflowers you have there, Terry, and you photograph them so well.

    • I will never cease to be amazed at and fascinated by the wildflowers. It seems that they must be part of an important message to us and I wish I was bright enough to figure out just what it is.

      • When you work it out, please tell me, as I’d love to know too. 🙂

  7. Gorgeous colours and the photo is great, I love how you have brought it into focus against the background. I’ve been trying to teach myself photography for a while but they never come out like this!

    • Thank you Sara! The wonderful thing about digital photography is that you can afford to experiment, and thereby learn. The hard part is understanding what the engineers were thinking as they developed and produced your camera.

    • It’s fairly common down here. It likes open, rather dry places.

  9. Such a vivid color!


    Comment by Candace — May 16, 2015 @ 6:24 pm

    • The shades and hues of the wildflowers are a fascination by themselves, aren’t they!


      Comment by montucky — May 16, 2015 @ 8:56 pm

  10. Like the Wildflowers in your area. Nicely done!


    Comment by Reed Andariese — May 17, 2015 @ 6:39 pm

    • Thanks Reed. We do have lots of wildflowers here and some are real beauties. Small, but pretty.

  11. This is such a beauty. I like the way the unopened buds seem to be standing at attention, as though they’re waiting for their orders to open!

    • Something that is endearing about wildflowers is that they are true individualists. They seem to go to extremes to be different.

  12. I stared at Your photo for a long time – and enjoyed.


    Comment by Sartenada — May 27, 2015 @ 12:33 am

    • I’m glad that you enjoyed it! That’s a very different flower, isn’t it!
