Joseph's Coat Flowers at Monticello Art Print
A Museum Quality Art Print of Joseph's Coat flowers in the gardens at Monticello which are located in the western lawn. Jefferson included the Joseph's Coat in a shipment of seeds from Paris to his brother-in-law, Francis Eppes, in 1786. The vibrant yellow and red foliage of this brightly plumed tender annual provides an eye-catching display of color. Its edible leaves have a walnut-like flavor and can be eaten raw in salads or steamed. Joseph's Coat grows to four feet and likes a warm, sunny exposure.
