Q. Who is Mr. Smarty Plants?

A: There are those who suspect Wildflower Center volunteers are the culpable and capable culprits. Yet, others think staff members play some, albeit small, role. You can torture us with your plant questions, but we will never reveal the Green Guru's secret identity.

Title: Help identify a plant.
Answered by: Nan Hampton

QUESTION:

Could you help me to identify this plant?

ANSWER:

Mr. Smarty Plants loves to identify plants but I'm afraid we need a photo and/or description to do so.   Please visit the Ask Mr. Smarty Plants page and read the instructions on how to send us photos under "Plant Identification".
