What is this? Shrimp Plant SOLVED by Betty Mackey in one guess.

This picture is straight from my camera, no cropping, no adjusting of color, contrast, saturation — simply as is. I did adjust the resolution to make the image an appropriate size for posting on RB. Submitted for Bubble Jeopardy a plant is a plant challenge. Cocktail sauce, anyone?

Shot in May 2007 in the back yard of a friend’s rental property in Tallahassee, Florida.

    I think gardening in Florida must have given me an advantage. Now that I’m in Pennsylvania I hardly ever see this.What a pretty color it is.

  • There are yellow ones, too, but I like the shrimpy-pink ones the best. Thank you for commenting … I should have known a Floridian would have no problem identifying it.
