The Cutting Edge

Volume XXI, Number 1, January 2014

SEASON'S PICK: Due primarily to the fact that a fine specimen happens to be in full bloom right now on the property of Manual co-PI Barry Hammel, Asterohyptis mociniana (Benth.) Epling (Lamiaceae) becomes our inaugural Pick for 2014.

Sporting only very small and nearly actinomorphic flowers (with spikey green calyx and white corolla) this species nevertheless deserves a spot in the garden for the aplomb of its entire flowering and fruiting display.  The huge display of green spicate branches fade as they dry to tan over the season, but even then remains impressive.  See more of Hammel's photos of this sp. on Flickr
