Frostweed is a lovely perennial plant that is native to Texas and many other states, but has been ignored by commercial nurseries.

And I want to thank you for the seeds, Jo. I am just getting started with them. The frozen shapes are beautiful and I'm so pleased this fascinating wildflower grows here! I leave most of my yard and garden clean-up until spring so the birds and other critters can have the seeds and so forth and have become smitten with the way plants look during the winter. Truly a beauty all their own.
