Today in his Dallas Forth Worth radio program Neil Sperry and a guest
were talking about a resilient fall color plant for the area called ???
oblongifolia... Could not get the first part. A search on the net
shows there are many of them(oblongifolias) as you would expect. From
the comments it has blue or close to blue flower and does better when
I know I am not giving many clues.. but can anybody figure out what
plant he could have been referring to?
You really didn't try very hard, did you?
Now you know to get the genus name next time!!!
The species epithet "oblongifolia" has been given to a multitude of species.
Look here for 755 records (some are duplicates.)
Why don't contact this Neil Sperry fellow by way of his website?
That is the problem, there are many of them. I could not get the first
part of the plant identification, which is the reason I was asking
thinking that somebody in the DFW area had been listenning to the
program and may hang around here...
Neil only takes questions on the air.
You sure are one lazy net monkey.
If you had bothered to look over his website, you would have found an
Send him a message asking about the plant name.
I really appretiate your help. I am a subscriber of Neil's magazine
and have listened to his program when possible for the last ten years.
I know what his business is. I am familiar with his web site, which I
visited before I posted, and know his rules. The fact that the web site
has an email entry, does not mean he takes questions on the site. He
takes questions on the air. He also accepts all the questions with
pictures you may want to send him, but he will only select a handfull
for the weekly newsletter. No answer for the rest of them. I have gone
that route before... Can you guess what happended with my question?.
He has define the rules and I am fine with that. I would do the same
in his place.
Thank you for your help and the affectuous adjective.
A little googling for oblongifolia blue flower fall turns up the likely
candidate of Aster oblongifolia, variations of which are found native
throughout the south/southwest from Kentucky to Texas and which does
well in dry conditions/poor soil.
