Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
The plant itself has leaves that are maroon in color. The flowers are bright pink and stringy. The flower itself can be a few inches in diameter, with each of the petals about a couple inches long.
This plant is in the witch hazel family, you can see the resemblance in the flowers.
Occasionally I do, but I think thats mostly from people planting them here, and the seeds spreading around. I dont think this is one of those plants that are found naturally in the wild in Texas.
And do you see them outside your garden, wild in Texas?
haha, thats because this is planted in my yard. However, these are habitable to the entire South of the USA (USDA Zones 7A-10A). Theyre original native to China in the Hunan province. http://www.absolutewonder.com/loropetalu...
