Abstract

Torenia fournieri L., commonly known as the wishbone flower, bluewings, or torenia, is a bedding plant from the Scrophulariaceae. Native to Indochina, torenia plants grow well in full sun or partial shade but prefer cool, moist, shaded areas. Torenia are oppositely branched, round in habit, and attain a height of 30 cm. These low-growing annuals are attractive in garden borders but are also well-adapted to pot culture and hanging baskets. Torenia flowers are located on terminal racemes and consist of a five-winged tubular calyx. The common name, wishbone flower, refers to the shape and position of the stamens, which arch together, fusing at the anthers to resemble a chicken wishbone.

Abstract

Some authorities place the genus Paulownia in the family Bignoniaceae, while others place it in the Scrophulariaceae, a closely related family (4). Paulownia tomentosa Steud., the empress or princess tree, originates in China. According to Hu (2), there appears to be no published record of an accurate introduction date into the United States, although it probably was introduced shortly after 1844. The species received an award of merit from the Royal Horticultural Society of London in 1934 (1). Because of its tolerance of poor soils and its rapid growth rate, it has become popular for strip mine reclamation (10). In addition, the wood of Paulownia is considered valuable, especially in Japan (9).

Abstract

Texas silverleaf, cenizo, or purple sage [Leucophyllum frutescens (Berl.) l.M. Johnst.] is native to Texas in the Rio Grande Plains, southern Trans-Pecos and sparingly in the Edwards Plateau (1, 5, 7, 8). It is not a true sage (Salvia) but is in the same family (Scrophulariaceae) as penstemon, snapdragon, and Indian paintbrush. It is found in plant hardiness zones 10a, 9a, 9b, 8b, and 8a (6) as far north as London in Kimble County where it is most prevalent on south-facing slopes of caliche hills.
