I don't know what he is called but he sure is destructive. So far he seems to love my brugs and that I can't have! He also seems to like basil and my confederate roses. Now we have a REAL problem with him as Confederate rose and Brugs are my favorites!

Any one know what this little critter is? Thanks for the help id'ing him.

I read that you have had bugs on your confederate rose and I was wondering if you have the yellow swamp mallow that I have been looking for. Some people call it yellow confederate rose. I have just started two years ago growing the pink and I love it. cjs41 Cheryl

cjs, I'm not sure. I received these from one of the members here and don't know what color yet. When they bloom, I will post a pic. I still have a few seeds left if you would like some to try. Let me know.
