This is one of many pages describing plants and animal life
that we have in our garden. In many cases, we don't know what they are. Comments welcome.
By default the photos on this page are relatively small (“thumbnails“). Click

We bought this plant in Napoleons in February 2011, thinking it was a Fuchsia. It's clearly not that, but it took a while to find out what it is; finally
Laurel Gordon told us that
it's Mirabilis jalapa, a Peruvian
plant (again!) named after a Mexican
city. It's perennial and likes full sun, so we can now do something with it. There are
two plants, one with red flowers and the other with yellow.
