    Turk's cap is another weed. It has interesting seeds, though!

    A weed that I am so very sorry I planted. It is beautiful, but stinks and spreads like crazy. Impossible to kill or so it seems...

    Clerodendrum bungeii (spell ? I'll have to look up these names later)

    Beautiful pictures Ann. Good to see any blooms at this time of year. Of course we would have a few things still in bloom if it would rain.
    I think what you call a wild petunia is a morning glory relative. Wild petunis don't get but about 6-7 inches tall and are not a vine. But they are that color.
    Thanks for taking time to snap those blooms for us.

    What pretty weeds ! We have nothing that pretty here. Maybe some wild aster and wild daisy both with tiny flowers, but that's about it.

    Oh, DUH!

    Sue, you are absolutely correct! I knew I was brain dead when I was posting the pics....

    Yes, Cathy! We have pretty weeds, but they are awfully invasive!

    Fall native plants blooming in Austin

    The Fall Asters, Mexican Mint Marigold, and Pentas are blooming simultaneously producing quite a show of color in our Austin Fall garden. Makes up for the lack of fall foliage color

    Not a lot blooming here other than the Mums, a couple of mini roses and a David Austin type plus my 2 forlorned looking hybrid tea roses, 'Proud Land' and 'Queen Elizabeth'. A few 'Stella D'Oro' are still opening every few days, but it is the only daylily. Oh I did forget about that silly carpet rose and the weed I call Malvia and some call Dwarf Hollyhock. The plant I pruned back severely in late July actually looks the best. I actually planted it and am now very sorry I did as there are seedlings popping up everywhere.

    My Nigh Bloom Jasmine is trying to bloom, but the blooms don't seem to be as big as I remember them being and I have yet to catch any fragrance from them. Seems to be bloom awfully late this year too. It is one of few house plants still out.

    I have several of the tropicals (house plants) bloom, two of the hibiscus are blooming and one of the seedlings I kept has buds, I think it's the one that bloomed a couple years ago. I keep watching for buds to begin to form on the second seedling. Of course most of my 11 Lantana are still blooming, I think I have 9 different ones although a couple are very similar as they are both pinks. The variegated one has been lovely this year and have bloomed some, but not a lot. Some of the coleus I grew from seed are beginning to bloom although they are inside, I plan to let the bloom. I have one that has the most humongous leaves you've seen, also grown from seed, it is one of the "Kong" coleus.

    I'll have to post images when I get them up loaded and edited.

    That's quite the show you've got going on in Texas!

    Ann, your roses are so beautiful and that Clerodendrum bungeii is awesome - with it grow from seed to flower in the same season> If it would it would be a great northern plant as the freeze would kill the seeds! I still like the larger flowered one the best. And you know I just love that red Passiflora, too bad they aren't hardy up here or that I don't have a green house to grow one in.

    I also have basement pictures, once I up load and IF they turned out. Maybe tomorrow night I can post a few images.
