Thank you sallyg. He was inquisitive of what I was doing and made a nice backdrop for the plants colors to show well. I'm researching this plant more to see if it'll be okay just growing wild or if I need to transplant it in order to care for it better. The summers here in Texas get very hot and dry. I'd hate for the plant not to make it. Thanks again for all the replies and help.
16blue... He is a mix between a gold Brahma hen and a white crested Polish rooster. He will get more gold as he gets older (he's got a few growing at the base of his tail) and will grow a high tuft of feathers on his head. We have several breeds of hens and roos running around our acreage and they always create interesting youngins :-) Thanks to everyone for all the help and knowledge of plants on this site. I never knew a site like this existed till this morning and am very happy to have found it. Everyone seems very nice and helpful.
