One of the stars of August is this magical plant, Talinum paniculatum ‘Limon’.
I do love its chartreuse leaves.
I love its tiny pink blooms.
But its best feature is its seeds.
That is why its common name is Jewels of Opar.
These little round seeds sparkle in the sunshine.
They also drop to the ground and germinate.
So the jewels have dropped and scattered over the years.
Those familiar chartreuse leaves show up wherever the plant was located last season
or in the pots of other plants next to the pots where they bloom.
I do truly love this plant, jewel dropping and all!
