Exotic Gardening with Rare and Strange Plants

Another stunning beautiful October day today, I hope it never ends. I’ve been trying to take a photograph of my 20ft Jerusalem artichoke for some time now with no success. How does one properly get a shot of a 20 ft specimen that only flowers in grumpy old gray October. With all the sunshine today I was able to get this great shot. For those who haven’t given these a try, I would say it’s well worth the effort.
