About 2&1/2 years ago I limbed up this Loropetalum chinense, pruned back hard, & wired to direct some of the growth.  Really pleased with the results.  Working with this plant’s natural push toward a tree form has made all the difference.  Before it was forced into a shrub form and had to be sheared constantly.  Now maintenance is low and visual interest has increased.  Work with the plant.  #ambitionwithoutknowledgeislikeaboatondryland #loropetalum #horticulture #arboriculture

🚨 Parasitic Wasps have moved in!  The white structures are actually cocoons of Cotesia congregata (Braconid Wasp). It all started with a female laying eggs beneath the skin of this Hornworm (Manduca quinquemaculata). Eggs turned into larvae hatched inside the caterpillar.  After feeding from within, immature wasps pushed through skin of its weakened host and began to pupate.  Soon a healthy population of adults will emerge.  That pretty much guarantees my tomatoes with be pest free.  Feel bad for the little guy though.  #entomology #braconidwasp #tomatohornworm

One of many pics from American Aquatic Gardens Saturday with @besserleigh #marigny #followyournola #aquaticplants
Mimosa strigillosa (Sensitive Plant) captures imagination and awakens the inner child in most.  Spotted these on the river side of the levee before a Sunday stroll through the Batture.  #sensitiveplant #wildflowers #nativeplants
Glad I caught those Hornworms before my tomatoes got destroyed.  #tomato #fruit #ediblegarden
Five-spotted hawk moth (Manduca quinquemaculata) AKA Tomato Hornworm living up to its name.  Not MY tomatoes!!! 🚫🍅🐛 #entomology #caterpillar #tomato
