Next is aristolochia grandiflora, which is really beautiful BUT DO NOT feed this plant to your gold rim swallowtails, they will die after a few days!! The adults to lay eggs on this vine, but the cats die after eating it.

Those are all just beautiful, so glad the thistle worked out for you.

I really love the Bromeliads.

That last Lantana looks like a native one here in Texas that we call "Ham and Eggs." The latin name is horrida and it attracts the Monarchs that migrate through here twice a year.

Siam, the Swan flower did not put out any seed pods that I could find. I did locate several more patches of them all around the yard so will look again next year. We had more swallowtails here this year, so that could be the reason.

Thanks for showing all those gorgeous plants.
