Hi folks
My first time here
This guy grows in CA central valley when it's hot.
It is in a corner where it gets no water to start growing
or to keep growing.
I like it's star flowers and it's tenacity.
Thank you for your help.

It's a heliotrope, and I think this is the species for's a garden escape.

And yes...Name that plant is where you want to be.

Edit: I went and googled it...Heliotropium amplexicaule

Thank you dbarron
Heliotrope to start, then to Wiki,
started the other var., then more pics, and then
I decided that Heliotropium curassavicum aka
salt or alkali heliotrope matches mine a lot closer.
This has only had me wondering for five years.
Thanks again
