1 species or 2?
I went for a walk tonight and saw that one of my neighbors' lillies were blooming in all their glory! I decided to pick some for my daughter who's been feeling down in the dumps lately and I noticed mixed amongst these huge lillies was a bush with absolutely beautiful tiny little flowers. It appears they bloom in stages. As you can see in the photo, they have a tiny little red flower that drops from the center. It looks to me as if the little red flower falls off and in due time, the remainder turns purple. It almost looks as if it's 2 different flowers. Am I correct in my assumption? Is this one bush whose blooms change as time goes by, or am I deceived and it is 2 seperate species?
Can someone please identify them? My neighbors are snowbirds and have left for the season so I can't ask them. I'd really love to know. I'm going back out and I'll get some more shots if necessary.
Thanks in advance!
UPDATE: I went back out to get a better look at this plant and after REALLY looking at the leaves and how it grows , I'm wondering if it's a hoya of some sort. Any ideas?
