Only thing I have to showing off is this 3 feet long Acanthus (mollies).

    @widgetwilk ann, @Peggy in Texas. That's only flower I can show off this year so far. Apart from some lone Dalhias, Marigolds nothing much. Tried to grow Lupin, foxgloves, hollyhocks, aquilegia, petunias etc for first time but not a single plant survived. Clematis didn't flower, newly planted clematis, passiflora planted about three months ago only about foot tall. So it's all moaning.. Passiflora incarnata growing wild in Texas! That's good. Never seen in Fort Worth but Texas big state.

    I think they are only seen as wildflowers in rural settings, on pastures and in poor soil, in other words.  I saw them listed on a Texas Wildflower website and was shocked, as .  I thought they were exotic cultivated plants from far away exotic places.  :)

    Yes, @Peggy in Texas, that's s surprising. But that's the nature. Exotic plant it is. Probably came from Mexico as Texas sharing border and accustomised to Texan environment.
