I appreciate your diligent stewardship of this gorgeous plant! The story of the different grounds crews would be comical if it weren't so sad and frustrating! More later - I have a few ideas I'd like to talk with you about (viral campaign, market your students stewardship efforts). -JK

Great stuff Tom. I am also into the preservation of plants. I collect rare orchid species. As the rainforests in South America are bulldozed for timber and the land converted into farms, a lot of orchid species will become extinct. Collecting orchids is my bit for the environment.

This endangered plant looks very similar to weeds in Australia. But they have yellow flowers, not red.

Your perseverance paid off, Great photo and Great work!

Thanks, Jane and Ardent,for the compliments. Ardent, that's great about the orchids. A friend of ours in Guatemala had a huge collection, but it was always more interesting to see them in their natural surroundings.

The flower is a member of the centaurea family, which has dozens of species in Anatolia/Europe and also in North America. The flowers in this family have a pineapple shaped flower bud and 3-D cone-shaped petals.

Jane, you flatter me! Ownership is obviously an ongoing issue with this project, but I'm always willing to help with "other people's mistakes-based learning"!
