Magic Science Minutes
Updated: Feb 26
What do you do for 30 minutes while your sister is in violin lesson? Jump out of the car and grab the cell phone to ID plants... And I get beautifully inspired photos.
“Kings Play Chess on Fine Green Silk”
We had to take several photos to settle on the Species “Silk” name. We want both the Genus “Green” and Species name so it’s not confused with a different related plant.
Then for fun we Googled Pennisetum villosum to confirm! It’s a Non-Florida native Ornamental grass.
We try and plant native species as often as possible.
