@LindaTX8, Linda, because you are so kind you gave me this plant a long time ago:

Thumb of 2017-01-19/frostweed/778e19


Thumb of 2017-01-19/frostweed/b6ce42

I have the pictures in my computer and I am trying to name all of them. It is so pretty.
Can you help me with the name? I really would appreciate it.
Josephine. Smiling

Just editing your post, by changing Linda to @LindaTX8, would notify her. You don't have to change the title of the thread. It just gives her a notification that someone has mentioned her in a post.

I think she'll see this and pop in! Thumbs up

Hi, Josephine! Well, that one looks like Showy Menodora, Menodora longiflora. Very hardy plants, but in some roadside areas where they are mowed, they tend to go away. Too bad they do that so much in recent years.

Thank you Linda, I couldn't think of it to save my life. I no longer have the plant, but the picture is lovely so I wanted to name it correctly.
So Menodora longiflora it is, thank you very much.
