White Alder


Cuban Buttercup, White Alder, Turnera Subulata

White Alder is a perennial herb, native to West Indies, Brazil and Central America.  It has also totally invaded my aunt's perimeter fence.


The secret to living contently and sanely in this modern world is to find the beautiful in the ugly-but don't get confused which is which.  ~ Terri Guillemets

"Invaded" sounds as if it is not wanted, but it is very pretty.

Lovely flower -- I assume you mean it has taken over some other flowers that are also wanted! We used to have morning glory in Oregon, which is pretty itself, but when it gets started it chokes out everything else.

Pozwoliłabym mu obrosnąć moje ogrodzenie w ogródku, bo jest piękny. Pierwsze zdjęcie jest wspaniałe. Pozdrawiam. *** Let it grow on my fence in the garden, because it is beautiful :-). The first picture is great. Yours.

The blooms are beautiful. Why is it that invasive species always have the most beautiful flowers? I love that quote.
