Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


Wordless Wednesday

I'm adding a note to my Wordless Wednesday on Thursday! Some of you wanted to know what the plant/bush was. I am positive that Smalltown RN showed me the way! It's a species of coral bush!! Here's the link she left me in the comment section yesterday sometime. http://waynesword.palomar.edu/coraltr1.htm

For her knowledge and help, I thank her from the bottom of my heart! Now I can go to the nursery and see if they have them here for me to purchase and plant. Hmmmmmm, dilemma is, where will I put it? Back yard, or front yard?

  1. * * I need help on this one!! Please, if anyone knows the species of what plant this is --tell me!

    Hubby and I were at a park here in town the other day walking and birding...but I came upon this flowering plant and I don't know what it is!!! And I want one! I need anyone with flower/plant smarts to tell me so I can go to the nursery and find it.

    The leaf formation is quite like a cotton-wood tree, or perhaps an aspen tree---kinda sorta[but smaller and darker in color than aspen]. The flower looks a lot like a spider plant blossom, but I've never seen one in such a bold vivid red!

    Anyone know?* *

  2. Never seen a plant like that before. The flowers made us think it was a large salvia. We'd be fascinmated to find out what it is!

  3. No idea what species it is. I particularly love how you framed the first shot!

  4. I don't know the scientific name, but I herbey dub this plant "Devils Tail," because of the pointy red blossoms.

    Hey, did you change your blog look? It's lurvely!

    Happy WW!

  6. Ya, it DOES look like a salvia! Now that you mention it. Oh my....you don't suppose it's a salvia that is on steroids?! LOL

    Now I gotta go look on the 'net to see what the leaves look like on a normal red salvia.

    Thanks.

  49. What a very unique looking plant. I've never heard of Coral plant before. Cool. I wonder if it does well in the Pacific NorthWest. I love unusual plants.

  51. Wow Hootin'anni, 52 comments! That's impressive. You lured all those lurkers out of the undergrowth with that question.
    I'm sorry to hear that you've been ill. It sounds serious, but I hope things get better soon.
    Thanks for adding Helge, I only asked yesterday so you were very quick to do it.
