The lipstick plants are blooming at here at our historic property. The lipstick plants came from an original given to me over 30 years ago and still bloom as beautiful as ever! The lipstick plants hang in the Barnum Suite at our Inn. I have started more smaller plants and hopefully will have more to hang in the near future.
The bloom begins as a velvety tube-shaped flower and then opens and from the bottom of the tube comes a red colored oval blossom which opens over time. It’s a gorgeous sight to see and I’m so happy they like their home here with us.
You will enjoy your temporary home away from home too when you stay with us! We have a September “fall back” special for a two-night midweek stay Sunday through Thursday nights. Come and relax and enjoy the beautiful plants and flowers at the Inn and the fall foliage in Duluth, Minnesota. We hope to see you on your next trip to Duluth!
