As we were driving home tonight we went through some torrential rain around Cabot, with high winds and lightening, but as we left Cabot, not a drop of rain had fallen and that was the scenario at home. We need some rain!!

Here are the answers to your mystery plants and your new challenge.

Mystery plant A – mystery plant a aug10.152 is Ipomea carnea (ip-oh-MEE-a KAR-nee-uh) or the bush morning glory. Although normally winter hardy in south Arkansas, it can usually come back if temps don’t drop much below 15 degrees, I would suggest taking some stem cuttings prior to a hard frost to ensure you still have a plant the next year. This plant can grow similar in size to a confederate rose–up to 6-12 feet tall in one season, but it does bloom a bit longer. Give it full sun and it is an easy plant to grow.

Mystery plant B – mystery plant b aug10.152 is Galphimia gracilis (gal-FIM-ee-uh GRASS-il-is) commonly called Thryallis or golden thryallis is an evergreen shrub in Florida, but would be a summer tropical in Arkansas.

Mystery plant C – mystery plant c aug10.152 is Osmoxylon lineare (os-moh-ZY-lon lin-AIR-ee), commonly called Miagos bush is an interesting tropical or houseplant for us. Not commonly found, it is a rare tropical ornamental miniature tree valuable for its exotic fine-cut leaves.

New challenges:

Mystery plant A – IMG_1641 is a perennial.

Mystery plant B – mystery plant b.aug17.15 is another perennial.
