This is a product of a large clump of rhizomes labeled "Master Plan." It does not look like the AIS wiki photo... so it's off to last years pictures to try to ID. Whatever it is, it has great form and substance. The photo was taken late in the day. The setting sun has added a warmth. Has anyone ever asked, "What color is the Grand Canyon?" To be sure each layer of stone when isolated has a specific color. Watching time lapse photography makes the above the unanswered question. At any given moment in time any part of the the canyon could be almost any color.
