A cool plant in our garden!
Gomphocarpus physocarpus, commonly known as hairy balls, balloonplant, balloon cotton-bush, bishop`s balls, nailhead, or swan plant, is a species of plant in the family Apocynaceae, related to the milkweeds. The plant is native to southeast
Africa, but it has been widely naturalized. We’ve been watching the flowers through late summer — and then WOW! we now have these seed pods that are 2-1/2” and larger, lime green. #mbgscene
