Column: Mystery Plant -- ‘Fantastic’

This fantastic flower was produced on a tree at what we here in Columbia call the Belser Arboretum, a 7-acre (or so) tract of forested land pretty much in the middle of the city, and two blocks from my home. The Arboretum was bequeathed to the University of South Carolina in 1959 by William Gordon Belser, a Columbia resident and owner of the property, for the purpose of providing field experience and training for botany students.
