Gardeners' Notes:

Positive dmj1218 On Jun 18, 2006, dmj1218 from west Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

This is a very interesting small, sub shrub with delicate pale yellow blooms. The leaf on the end of the stem is white to indicate that a future bloom will appear. This leaf then falls off. It likes summer shade and moist soil here in Houston.
