The Beautiful Brazilian Plume Flower

For the past two springs (since I’ve lived in this house), I’ve had a mystery flowering shrub in my flower garden. Obviously, the original owner, from which we purchased the house, planted the shrub years ago and I have had no way of contacting him to ask about the mystery bush.

Well, the mystery has finally been solved! After looking through hundreds of images online and in gardening books to no avail, someone on a gardening forum was finally able to identify it for me! (Thank you, Leslie.)

The shrub is a Brazilian Plume Flower!
