I got a purple velvet plant recently and I don’t think any of my other plants throws such a dramatic tantrum about being underwatered as this one does. Look at it. It’s so sad.
(The peperomias also droop when they’re a little too dry but the top stays perky, like they’re trying to stay happy while they’re falling apart. The succulents just kind of quietly shrivel up.)
I also have this mysterious wild milkweed coming up in my driveway, which makes the fourth (!!!) species of milkweed on my property and the second that I did not intentionally plant. There are a few species of milkweeds in NE that have broad leaves like this, but it’s probably common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca).
If you didn’t know this already, milkweeds are the sole host plants for monarch caterpillars. If you’re worried about monarch habitat destruction, plant a milkweed.
First columbine blooms of the season! I love these flowers because they look super delicate and exotic but they’re hardy to zone 3 and nearly impossible to kill

Hi plant people, please tell me wtf to expect with this raspberry bush (yes I know my trellis is janky)
I bought it last year as a dormant cane in a cup. The bush is now putting up a lot of new canes, and there’s not a single leaf on last year’s canes. The question that I haven’t been able to answer via googling is this: do raspberries put out new primocanes before the floricanes grow new leaves, or are my floricanes fucked? Is it supposed to do this??? Pls I just want berries
