I've never picked the flowers off so I'll have to wait until they grow back again to see. I noticed no sap at the cut.firebirdflys wrote:M'lady, you did not answer my questions.
It is not bittersweet, the leaf arrangement on those plants are alternate,
The plant in question leaves are definitely opposite.
I have more questions, like... is the stem round or square?
Does the plant have an offensive odor?
And is there a tinge of red to the stem like the leaf is near the petiole?
And lastly....does it get any kind of berry or fruit?
They don't really look like dogbane flowers. They just grow in that one cluster up at the top where the dead part is in the first picture; they just grow out of the top like that. They're pure white flowers, very small, and grow really close together.firebirdflys wrote:Hi
Do any of the flowers look like any of these?
dogbane flowers...oops the link won't work. Look up white dogbane flowers and see it they look like them
if not can, you describe the flowers?
Like, do they go up the stalk like snap dragons? What is the shape and size of the flower?
Now I'm really curious,
What area do you live in?
I apologize for not responding in a timely manner, I haven't been on this site in a while.firebirdflys wrote:I'm sorry,
being a florist I'm always on the prowl for flowers that last long in a vase.
A cut flower is most usually removed from the plant way far down on the stalk, some last longer than others. Some long lasting cut flowers are carnations, mums, alstromeria, some kinds of roses, lillies, and orchids.
The plant I orginally thought was your plant, in the dogbane family, do not make a good cut flower because they wilt shortly after removing them from the plant.
