3 This morning I discovered the most amazing plant, Diphylleia Grayi , otherwise known as the Skeleton Plant. Its petals turn as transparent as glass when it gets wet. The blossoms look like something out of a fairy tale, all made out of glistening crystal. Check out this link where you can see a time lapse video of the white petals becoming transparent and read more about this beautiful plant. I want to find out if I can grow it here in Cornwall but did read that it is “classified noxious weed in the States grows 4 foot tall. Can’t be dug out. Has to be eliminated by weed killer” Can any of my readers in the US tell me if this is so?
