Dow Gardens / Midland / Michigan

Another study of one of my favorite plants, the Umbrella Papyrus.


The first time I went to Dow Gardens, I missed going to the tropical conservatory, which shocked me when I finally saw it. Tropical greenhouses are almost always my favorite places. This one is small compared to most, but there are some nice specimens in there. This plant in particular was extravagant, flowing in a hundred different directions from the watery pot it lived in. The cool blue-grey walls of the conservatory looked really serene behind it, too.
