  1. Thats an extraordinary plant, would love to know what it is. Did 10 minutes of searching but no match so far. I'll promote it to the homepage to give it some attention. Posted 7 years ago
    1. Thanks, that's the first I recall seeing one of these. It was in a marshy area in coastal South Carolina. The entire plant was about 7 feet tall. Posted 7 years ago
  2. Whew.. that took some digging - I thought it resembled a very early rose hip, but it took a lot of digging to come up with the right thing. If you go back in a week or two the hips will probably have turned red. In June/July you would have seen the flowers.
