  2. Ooh, that is nice. Are the flowers delicate or are they waxy?

    • Thanks Vicki. These are very common and very plentiful and most folks don’t pay attention to them.

  6. We have that here too. It’s a very pretty flower. Those stripes are hard to get a good shot of but you did great!

    • I think they are pretty, but I’ll bet a lot of people just pass them by without pausing to look closly at the flowers because they are rather small.

    • It’s toxic, but I don’t understand how that applies to its name. The plant really does spread though.

    • Yes, it’s covering some territory. The shade from its leaves helps keep the ground from drying out too soon.

    • I wondered if the name came from something like that, but Buster doesn’t show any reaction to it.
