Maybe an Escapee

I snapped a quick shot of some tiny plants this morning, because of those cream-lined leaves. I didn't see the flower until I transferred photos to my computer this pm. That structure to the left is a plastic nursery pot with drainage holes, and the holes provide perspective on size. But I don't know if the flower and plants belong together. They were in a rocky drainage ditch, in front of a home.

RE: Maybe an Escapee

I thought the white looked like leaves, not flowers. Reminds me of Euiphorbia marginata.

RE: Maybe an Escapee

Possibly Daphne 'Carol Mackie'

Here is a link that might be useful: link

RE: Maybe an Escapee

i was thinking daphne also..

with a terminal albino in the mix.. dont get too excited.. it will die.. hence the name ...


RE: Maybe an Escapee

Daphne looks like a possibility. And carol might be right about the white portion being foliage. Thanks all.

RE: Maybe an Escapee

Guessing a Sedum maybe S.lineare variegated.
Reason being Daphne hate hot climates. It may
be cooler than Texas, but may be hot enough
to do in Daphne.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sedum lineare Variegated

RE: Maybe an Escapee

I agree that the white looks like leaves. Is the foliage succulent? If so I'd go with the Sedum idea. If not how about Arabis procurrens 'Variegata'.

RE: Maybe an Escapee

I cropped the image until I could see leaf edges, and it does appear to be a succulent. Internet images of Sedum lineare seem to match, in both leaf shape and pattern. I'll have to return in April or May to check for yellow flowers.
