Own a small ranch in NW Montana. The property is a jungle of plants/flowers. I can tell you just about anything horsey, still learning about plants😄

Hi all my wonderful GT'ers. Sorry I have been MIA for so long. Mom was diagnosed with cancer, had to have emergency surgery because it was blocking her kidney. We decided to move here with me.

I think you need to take some time to heal! No we haven't had snow for about 10 days but there's still a bit left in our yard from a snowstorm we had about 3 weeks ago. Warming up now -finally!

Oh wow @gjones ... Still snow on the ground? We didn't get much snow this past winter. So, ours is all gone. And I try to behave. I just feel like I'm in a straight jacket. It drives me nuts. Lol

Still not sure about #plantid🤔🤔🤔. Some of y'all have said azalea, but I'm still not quite sure that is correct. 😭😭😭

No definitely not an azalea. The flowers are #gaura like but they don't all grow up one spike like that. 🤔 perhaps @justin or @mikethegardener can help?

Thank you Stephen. The leaves on this are jagged @Hawick1514. The oleanders that I am familiar with are smooth on the edges, but the shape is similar.

I'm stumped Laura. I have several of them blooming in my back yard right now. They do have a light sweet scent too @columbiariver
