Hey Lisa,
Are yours planted or in pots? Mine are in pots and I have to prop them against a wall or the just go right over. It's a pretty flower and fruit though

Hi Stac, mine are in the ground and yep, they bend waaaay over, makes a pretty arch over my walkway :0)though. I want to try to start some from seeds, but don't know when to pick them..any help?

Also, my descripiton reads:"seed head ripe with fruit" would that be a right statement?lol

I haven't collected seed but haven't had any seedlings either. Have you had any problem with this plant spreading aggressivly? I've read that it can be invasive so I'm very leery about actually planting it here

Stacy, I"ve had mine in the ground for 2 years now. A few (maybe 3) runners have shot up from the roots, so I suppose it could get out of hand, it is so pretty however that I don't mind.

Thanks Lisa, that makes me feel much better about the plant :) Maybe I'll plant one of them this spring

Where can I get the plant (or Seeds) for Turk's Turban. I'm in Atlanta.

Here's a shot of mine. I didn't know which clero it was when I bought it. What a show!! Mine is in the ground--and I have lots of suckers to trade.
