Angel's Trumpet Flower 0588

Have you ever seen as long and slender a floral tube as the one on this wildflower? It’s Mirabilis longiflora, called angel’s trumpet, and I photographed it at the Rio Grande Nature Center in Albuquerque on September 24th.

A couple of years ago I showed a species of Mirabilis that’s native in central Texas.
