I found this little plant at the nusery. I just love the look of this plant. They had plugs for .50 cents each so I was able to get 2 plants. I'm going to grow it in a hanging basket on the front porch.

Picture is a bit blurry but I was thinking the same thing, a chenille plant. I have seen some really big beautiful ones at the Philadelphia Flower Show and just last month at a Conservatory. I don't think I have any pictures of them but I will look. Holly

I was thinking it was a chenille plant. There was no name on it at the nursery. Guess I could go back and ask. Whatever it is I like it and have it growing in a hanging basket.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
