Flower Photos: The Nicotiana Plant on Okinawa, Japan

                        These pink flowers caught my eye while over on the island of Ie Shima.

    They were growing on the tops of all these plants in neat rows covering acres and acres of land.

     Researching these flowers to find the exact scientific name for you, I came to this conclusion:

                                                                       WHO CARES?

There are so many different species of this plant it's best for me to just give you the family name, Nicotiana and you can get some seeds and dirt, plant your own, and when flowers start popping out all over them, name the things whatever you feel like.

If you haven't already guessed, the Nicotiana plant is TOBACCO and it doesn't just grow and get used in Okinawa, Japan.  It's probably one of the most popular recreational drugs in the world.

If you don't believe me, just ask MR. WIKIPEDIA.
