    I like the picotee coloring of this flower. It's not anything I'm familiar with, so assume it's not hardy in my part of the world, however it does remind me a little of evening-primrose. Anyone have an idea what it's related to?

    P.S. I am not Bruce, either, just in case it wasn't obvious! LOL

    How can we be sure????! Can you PROVE you are Bruce? For the record, I am not Bruce but I used to know a Bruce in my old neighborhood.....

    Nice job, Ischel. Mine has buds on it now. Why does my stuff seem to bloom later than everyone else's?? Just a grumble; don't pay me no mind.

    I'm not Bruce.....and I've got a desert rose and it doesn't look like yours!!! Mine has little red flowers and lots and lots of thorns.....sort of like a rosebush on sterioids. So, but I liked yours and commented really really late....but I have an excuse!!
