Sea of flowers at U.S. Botanic Garden

I can’t remember exactly what type of flowers these are (is it blatantly obvious to everyone else out there? Can you let me know?) But they remind me of Andy Warhol’s series of Flowers:

Andy Warhol, Flowers, 1964

From the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh website:

“It was in 1964…that Warhol embarked on one of his most successful projects using the flower motif. In a series of paintings based on a photograph of hibiscus blossoms, Warhol drenched the flowers’ floppy shape with vibrant color and set them against a background of rich undergrowth, transforming them into psychedelic indoor décor.”

That’s some flower power.
