austin plant discovery

spiderwort--sounds like a plant i would want NOTHING to do with. i have a near-phobic fear of spiders and most things with more than four legs(bumble bees and a few other exceptions). *shiver* however, i love this plant--all the curly, furry blooms are so cool looking. i haven't been brave enough to try to paint this yet but i'm sure it will happen. the first time i saw this was on the first ever austin garden blogger spring fling. since then i have seen it at a couple nurseries around town. supposedly it can be invasive but i am going to plant some anyway, maybe in a container....

One of my favorite plants, actually. It's so vibrant and kind of exotic - attributes that always appeal to me in the garden. How's it going? Lunch soon!

this plant looks adorable! and, just LOOK at it! its just meant to be rendered some beautiful prather form or another. i can't wait to see what comes of that idea!
