Tall stalk of something

| No Comments

(1, 2) I planted 3 packages of mixed wildflower seeds...I have no idea what kind of flowers these are, although I think the orange ones in the first photo are California Poppies (I haven't seen them in the daytime when they're open). I'm really curious to know what the tall flowering "dreadlock"-like stalk is. The fence is 6 feet high so this flower, err, plant is now about 4 feet tall.

(3) What's left of our green beans...note the holes in the leaves caused by all the white flies. There were enough green beans last Monday evening for a big bowl full and tonight there were a handful. I think the green bean plants have ended their season...

[3:00pm April 29, 2006] Yes, here it is 3 years later and now I finally know what the dreadlock plant is! Scientific Name: Amaranthus caudatus; Common Name: Love-lies bleeding; Tassel flower (see Wikipedia description).
