I Give Up...
I thought I would go over to the garden and see if I could find a photograph there. I was so surprised to see that "my" plant which I bought at a nursery several years ago, had all these black pods on it! So here's the tricky part... My sister Joan had one of these plants in her back yard. It has small blue flowers on it when it is in bloom. The plant is now close to four feet tall. Joan can't remember which plant it is, unfortunately. I have never seen the black pods on it before - that must be because the plant needed to reach a certain age. I asked Kathy what she thought the pods were, and she suggested that they were seed pods. So I opened one up. She was right, as usual... :-) I should have photographed some of the leaves. I will say that there are three leaves at each junction on a branch. The leaves are about 1.5 inches long, and look like a water drop, and have smooth edges. Any guesses out there?
