December 2021 D is for ...

Post by MikeT » Wed Dec 01, 2021 5:53 pm

Having looked back at previous December competitions, I can't come up with a novel seasonal theme, so I'm resorting to an alphabetical theme.
So December's competition is any plant that fits the criteria D is for ...

It could be genus or species name - or common name if there is one. So an opportunity to dust off the Dendrocereus and Dendrosicyos - neither seem to get aired very often. Or any other D is for... that you have.

I don't claim to be much of a photographer. But entering the Christmas spirit, here is my shocking pink offering. D is for Desdemona, one of the Schick hybrids.
