What’s Doin’ The Bloomin’?
Pink Turk's Cap
(Our Prayer Garden Turk’s Cap is behind the fountain on the right)
This native plant is a splashy Texas favorite and loves its home in our Prayer Garden. Turk’s Cap is actually a perennial shrub which thrives in partly-shaded heat and rewards with beauty in early fall. Whorled blossoms in red, white or peachy-pink feed hummingbirds & butterflies, then give way to marble-sized fruit, which is enjoyed by birds and animals. Its mature size is roughly 3’ x 3’. It was discovered in 1833 right here in Texas by a Scottish botanist, Thomas Drummond…..so he got the naming rights.
Please come and enjoy the Prayer Garden to pray, unwind or have coffee with a friend. It’s always changing as we add new plants (and labels), to foster a connection with the living creation that’s right here on our campus.
