Unknown Perennial Flower

This is the flower with the most extended vase life! No amount of storms, lightnings, rains and droughts can destroy its beauty. It can withstand the tests of time, and harshness of the weather. I just haven't asked the discoverer of this species if it has already a name! Let us not put Carl Von Linnaeus to shame, as this is one of the very few plant species which he was not able to give the Binomial classification or what we call Scientific name. It has been a common style in naming a biological specimen to put the discoverer's name on it as a species. Can you now suggest how to call it?


Update: This is given the name Concreteus bloomus 'Bernieh' as given by the owner of Bushbernieh's Garden.

I am very sorry for not being able to make a normal bloom post, as I have been sick these past few days! Even if i haven't, i still want to join all of you, so this fun post. I have posted my ordeal in my other blog Andrea in this Lifetime. Thank you very much for the understanding. I will make up for this in the next Friday posts.

    1. Hahaha Luna hindi ako nakakuha ng sakit sa baha! I posted my experience in my other blogsite. In making Scientific names, there are also rules that species and genus must have coherence! e.g. Lycopersicon esculentum, Solanum tuberosum

  10. Andrea,

    Hope you are feeling better.

    This Is too funny. I love this new flower. It also bears a striking resemblance to Flosus granitus.
