Flowers at Longwood Gardens

Blue Poppy
Blue poppies are only grown in Alaska. They need very cold and long winters to be able to bloom. They look very similar to the red poppies that grow locally. I am glad to have had the opportunity to see them.

Blue Orchid is a one of a kind.

The orchid in the bud stage is injected with blue dye. The flowers are very striking. If the flowers were to bloom again in the future they would be the original color not blue.
