The Giant Amsinckia of Union City

 This giant Amsinckia flower is stretched oout over five or six stories overlooking a play ground in Union City near the BART station. Kudos to the artist!

Who painted this amazing mural?

It was Mona Caron. Check her on Facebook and on Laughing Squid.

The base of the plant dissolves into scenes from the area old and new. With greetings in different languages. Incredible!

A Random search of Amsinckia turned up the Panama California Expostion in San Diego.
Here is a book with their plant lists! It's turned to the page with Amsinckia.
