Re: Fibonacci Flowers

The number of petals on flowers are often Fibonacci numbers. Here Trillium = 3, Larkspur = 5, Bloodroot = 8, and Black-eyed Susan = 13. In the background are various equations defining Phi and then relating Phi to the Fibonacci sequence and finally the first 44 numbers in the Fibonacci sequence.

5 colors on Black.
