Proboscidea parviflora var. hohokamiana Devils claw plant
Starter seedlings of Proboscidea parviflora var. hohokamiana Red Devils claw. Double Devils claw is a plant native to southern Africa with pink to yellow blossoms and produces white seeds. Its name comes from the small hooks on the plants fruit. I grow this just because it is pretty, but I know that in some parts of the world it is used for medical purposes. The very interesting seed pod is where it gets its name. Claws used in Indian basketry. Growing 30 inches tall, it is an annual in my zone 8B garden.
