New plant discovered!!


Our garden is sporting a brand-new species of plant today. It's very uncommon and not likely to be seen anywhere else. Flowers can come in many different colours but in this case, only white. They also come in many sizes. It's best to stake the flowers with something or they can be too heavy for the plant to support. Without further fanfare....I introduce.....the bra plant!!

Yep, your eyes aren't deceiving you. Isn't it beautiful? Once this goes to seed we're definitely keeping some for future years.

I won't mention the fact that this has been hanging in the sunflowers for at least two days since we last did laundry...I hope! Could have been from the time before. Funny, the neighbours didn't mention it.....

Interesting. I wonder if you were to X-pollinate it with a smaller variety, that you might be able to come up with something more my size? This is quite obviously a German or Russian hybrid, lol. I hear that the French or Asian ones aren't as large?

Very funny and to think this was in 2006, I'm thinking that by now you might have had the odd nest in those cups?! Us birds love thoughtful gardeners like you!!
So pleased you tracked this link down for me.
Have a wonderful weekend
