The Rudest Bud I've Ever Seen

And it’s on such a soft and fuzzy plant, no less.

Uncarina peltata

It’s a shrubby caudex that will grow to 10 ft. tall. It will have golden trumpet flowers with a spectacular purple throat, I assure you. Stayed tuned for more photos as this bud opens, petals wide open.

We grow these indoors here. Maybe you can have them outdoors where you are. Where are you? These Uncarinas look to me like they’re from the Arabian peninsula. Maybe I’ll go check that out for you. Hold on while I google it.

Nope! They’re from Madagascar, like every other fantastical plant on the planet.
