The Beautiful Romanesco Broccoli

Stunning creation from nature.

Romanesco Broccoli: A Fibonacci Fractal at Garden Betty describes this natural beauty.

This chartreuse bud is an edible flower that is also known as a Romanesco cauliflower, but it’s technically neither — truly in a class of its own. It’s a fine work of art and a mathematical marvel. Did you know that a Romanesco is a beautiful example of a Fibonacci fractal in the natural world?

You’re looking at a natural fractal — quite simply, a detailed pattern that repeats itself ad infinitum.
