Thank you! Yes, isn't that neat? I haven't seen one forever. I was so surprised. I didn't see it till I got to mil's house

Can you tell me if there is a way to edit the subject? I forgot to title the post, LOL

Thanks Jeanie, I tried to edit and I guess I am dense but couldn't figure out how to change title

The monarch was very cool, it actually emerged that evening at my mil's house. She is 91 and doesn't get out and she had never seen a butterfly emerge, She was so excited

Mascagnia macroptera is absolutely new to me. Are they green flowers or green seedpods?

We will see if an old dog can be taught, lol
Thanks again I think I know how you know @Calif_Sue

@Mutisia, they have sweet little yellow flowers but I grow it for the seed pods they eventually turned a rusty color. Just beautiful

Amazing! We are much closer to their country of origin (Brazil), but I don't think I ever saw them growing here.

Jolana, could I ask you to post a picture of the seed pods when they change colour?

Your doggie is beautiful!

@Mutisia, if I get another, I will gladly post a picture but it is hard now to keep blooms after all the rain now we have horrible heat and grasshoppers/locusts moved in. Just enough to eat the flowers and shred all my cannas
I will find a pic for you. Smiling

Thank you, Jolana. I see you are having problems with critters as well - here it is rodents because of the draught.

Yes, there is always something, :smily

@Mutisia, this is a photo that belongs to @Bubbles. I hope to get to see the multi color butterfly pods on my vine one day. How beautiful are these? Take care, Smiling
