Here's one of those wonderful plants that will adjust to just about any situation! It's happy in sand, loam, clay, or limestone, as long as it is well drained. It will grow in full sun but really prefers part to full shade. And if all this isn't great enough, it is also very popular with butterflies and humming birds! Turkscap is native in East, Central and South Texas, and is often found growing along streams or at the edge of wooded areas. It is evergreen along the coast, but dies back to the ground where winters are cold.
