Name: josephine Arlington, Texas (Zone 8a) Hi Everybody!! Let us talk native.
Turk's Cap is a wonderful and very hardy plant that can bloom in sun or shade or in-between.
It starts blooming in June and blooms till frost. It doesn't require much water at all, and has been reported to live for fifty years or longer.
Hummingbirds and butterflies love the flowers, and the fruits are edible.
