  May I suggest that you include some photos of the whole plant and details of the leaves etc so that it is instructive to lay people like me who would like to learn to identify new varieties.
  That would make it not only a photographic exercise, but a botany lesson too.
Your pics are good enough to mount and frame but apart form the name, they do not tell any story. 
 Hope you take kindly to the suggestion,

The point is well taken,but with a rider.


One should limit the number of attchments to a particular mail as far as possible,so that it does not become a lengthy exercise,especially now with yahoo mail,the thumbnails seem to be no longer appearing on opening the mail
