We have in our back yard a huge tree that flowers in a burgundy red shade. There is also an almost phallic type of very tall plant growing in a wild area at the entry to our street. It seems to look like a cactus with leaves instead of thorns.
The Gardener’s Answer
Hi, Valerie: Is it possible to send me a digital picture of the plants you want identified? You can send them to email@example.com. It is difficult to say what these plants are without having more information, such as the time of year they bloom, what color they bloom, a description of the foliage, and any other information you can provide.
