Some lovely D's so far.

Sharon,
Is there a common name for Dracocephalum? Never seen that plant before; I love blue flowers.

Here are my D's:
Dodocatheon (AKA Shooting Star)

I feel bad so many are having problems posting. Trish you have quite a sense of humor over this. Also missing pix from Millie and Clara. Where are they? Sally - I bought Strutter's Ball last year, and yours looks great - hoping for mine this year. Butterfly - could you tell us something about "Devil's Hand"? Very exotic looking. I have lots of D's but here are just 3. . .

Devil's hand I bought at a nursery. It is an annual

I brought it inside for the winter but it is looking quite tired

I hope it will survive the winter. It does not seem to like inside as it needs lot of light and I must keep misting it. I can;t find directions anywhere of how to take care of it inside

Bf I love that Devils hand, so unusual.
Donna I love the shooting stars, boy would I love to have them!!! I have to figure out something for a shady area that I have.
All pictures are so beautiful.

The only thing I can find out about it on line it is supposed to be a tropical tree but no one told me that. It was sold to me as an annual or house plant. It better not be a tree
