Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

SOLVED: Photo 2

Rochester, NH(Zone 5a)

Here's another photo of the same plant showing a closer view. Now I guess I'll have to offer the seeds to anyone who can give me an answer in a years time if everyone is still stumped.

This is terrible. So many people have looked at theses threads and no one has a clue. Now I'll never know what this plant is. Seeds anyone?

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

I made a post in the House Plants forum linking to your thread(s). Maybe someone there can help - not everyone visits the ID forum regularly, but maybe someone over on the other forum knows that it is and can help. :)

Does it have square stems or any sort of scent? It sort of reminds me of lemon balm or mint. I'll have to see your other picture.

Hmmm, looked at the other pic. The flowers are all wrong for those suggestions. :(

Ma Vie Rose,
I am surprised and ever grateful for your continued work. I thought this was a dying thread. No, neither of these is my plant. I know them both, Herman's Pride and Snow-on-the-mountain. Also, I seriously doubt it would be hardy below zone 7-ish. I don't know what other info I can give you about the plant. Pepper me with questions. The photo perhaps is misleading. I don't remember where it appeared from. I can try to root you a cutting or send you seed if you are still perplexed.

it is ok Studley, i am persistend cause i am originally from the Philippines. this plant is common in that area. for the life of me, i do not remember the name even in the native tongue. eventually i will find it. one of my virtue is patience! so bear with me, in due time i will find it. i do a lot of surfing on the net. it is a fact though, that when we search for something so bad, it is so difficult to find, but when least expected, it is there at ur very eye. sooner of later, i hope to find the name of this mysterious plant. so bear with me, in due time it will surface :)... ma vie

Perrysburg, OH(Zone 5a)

I think I've found it's called Dracaena Godseffiana aka Florida Beauty. I did a search for it but couldn't get a link for you, but I did find quite a few pictures and they look very similar to yours.
Let me know if thats it.

The leaves are much smaller than dracaena gold dust. Also a dracaena would probably fry in the full sun where I have this plant. I wish I had something in the photo to show the scale of the leaves. Perhaps I can photograph it with a coin to give a better sense. The leaves are quite small, as is the entire plant (at this stage, may grow?). I however did learn where the plant came from and how it joined my collection. Let's just say it can be found in the Dominican Republic as a habitat.
