I've been listening to the Beattles recently and have been stuck on their Magical Mystery Tour album.  It's got me thinking about The Plant Provocateur and where to go from here as we march forward into the new year.  Most of the time The Plant Provocateur will feature things that can grow beautifully for almost anyone who cares to try.  However, every now and then fantastical flora will be featured just because it's so amazingly cool.  Sometimes things come across the camera lens that just scream to be in the spotlight and who is The Plant Provocateur to deny such superstardom?!  I'm always looking for funky foliage, outrageous color, and pleasing plant architecture.  So today's post is more of a reminder to say there are so many stunningly beautiful plants out there for everyone to enjoy, covet, and grow.  Whether these plants function as cut flowers to put some fresh style into your situation or as design elements to glam up the garden, I say, always look for something different, something funky, something wild.  It makes having plants around so much more interesting and so much more exciting.  So let this be your invitation.  No need to make a reservation.  The Plant Provocateur's magical mystery tour is waiting to take you away.
