This thing is running wild in the front yard. And I just let it for some time thinking it will protect my plants under the bushes. But now it looked beautiful and my dad was telling me now not to touch it nor hack it. At night it looks much better. It looks like beautiful mess up. Whenever we have people come up to the house they see it and just amaze as we are.

How strange. I too have that all over the garden and I wrote a post on that
We do not get snowfall here. I wish I had it atleast once in my left time. I have travelled where there is snow but it did not snow when I was there even...

@diosabella Actually this has grown wild in my garden. I do not know what it is called. I will do some search. If kept in trim it can be used as borders for garden beds.

@allknowing I though it just flowered because its really cold. Does yours flower all year round?

That is worth keeping. Its lovely. Of course looks like a filler plant? Can always offer some space and keep it trimmed?

@diosabella Why do they do that. If they didn't get attention they would just leaf it and do little but grow more.

@Bluedoll Im not sure. At first I was afraid to trim too much but someone gave me the tip that some plants needs drastic trimming to bloom and I did it with my bougainvillea. After that they bloom like crazy.

It does look very pretty. Do you know what it is called?
21 Jan 17
I actually don't know. I have so many plants and half of them I have no idea what they are called. Sometimes I just buy or order what I like. In some point I know what they were called and forget. Sometimes I just picked them beside the road because they look so pretty.

@diosabella I used to keep the tags off plants I bought but I usually ended up losing the tickets.

@JudyEv Me too. Most of my plants I bought from farmers has no tag. So if I dont research the name.. I have no idea what it is.

What plant is that? I haven't seen one but it's beautiful. It's purple with white tip
21 Jan 17
They call it "butones-butonesan". I'm not sure its english name. For 8 months its all leaves. Then I hacked it last November. And now it turns into this. I didn't have any idea that it will look beautiful. The white is not a tip. But a flower that looked like a big version of pin cushion head.
