I originally posted a picture of this in May but got no nibbles, so here are two more pictures. I brought starts of this home from my mother-in- law’s yard in Ft. Worth TX. They were planted there by a hired gardener of the previous house owner. I planted them in our back yard here in Bastrop. They grow to be around 6 to 7 feet tall in the summer. The blooms look like white worms.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!! I’ve been asking and looking for years, and no one knew! I just looked up “Piper auritum”, and that is exactly what it is! Keep up the good work, hortiphoto!

    Definitely in the pepper family (Piperaceae). It could be Piper auritum.
