Artist's Description

After much searching I finally found the name of this flower thanks to CdnSue on RB. It is Scabiosa Caucasia a perennial, which grows to about 1.5 meters each year with multiple flowers each one atop a long stem. This photograph shows the flower with its unopened bud, before opening into the dramatic bloom with delicate white petals (first photograph below). Shortly after the bloom forms the anthers open (second photograph).
