I'm a writer in New Braunfels, Texas. I work at Texas State University. I'm currently trying to cultivate a variety of fruit and nut trees, along with other things plantish in the yard.
My main passion, as it were, is passiflora. My passion flower collection has taken a nasty hit with our extreme weather of the past two years, but it's safe to say that at any one time I have incarnata, caerulea and Incense growing and flowering about the yard.
Other plants include two pomegranates of unknown provenance, one fruiting and one flowering-only variety, two Fredonia grape vines, one "Ison" black muscadine vine, one "Late Fry" bronze muscadine vine, three different types of mint, root beer plant (Piper auritum), Warren and Moonglow pear trees, one Cheyenne pecan tree, one Santa Rosa plum and one Methley plum. I've also got Pride of Barbados.
I live in: United States
My zone is: 8b TX
