I was recently asked by a writer for a list of plants that have a suggestion of movement in their name. I posed the question to my Florida Extension colleagues who help me with “Your Southern Garden”.
Over dinner at a nice Mexican restaurant, we came up with the following:
running cedar (pine)
Flying dragon citrus
I don’t know who came up with this last one, but it wasn’t me!
And here are even more, suggested by my Facebook friends
weeping blue atlas cedar
hearts a burstin’
white runner beans
Johnny jump up
Knock Out Rose
turnip greens (turn up – get it?)
creeping fig on garage door
