A friend of mine asked me to identify this plant that is growing in her brother's yard in Northern Florida. She says it would take over his yard if he let it.
Does anyone have an idea what this is?
I haven't a clue but I wouldn't mind having that weed one bit!
It's Brillantaisia ulugurica or guianensis -
depends on what site you look at.
They refer to it as a "Giant Salvia"
It can easily grow to 8 foot............cheryl
I knew someone here would be able to identify it. Thank you very much Cheryl.
It does look like a neat plant, but I don't need anything that could possibly be invasive.
Attractive. Is it scented?
