Yellow Aralia in the Limelight

I grow the Yellow Aralia (Osmoxylum lineare) for its pretty soft folliage.


The flower is a bonus.




In the above photo of my pink lotus flower captured last year, the Yellow Aralia was just a backdrop.
Today it is the Yellow Aralia flower's turn to be in the limelight!


What is it in your garden that is in the limelight today?
