No, Uncle Bob, it's not a starfish flower and hint #1--it does NOT have a foul odor or attracts flies which is what the starfish flower does. #2 if you eat this plant you will be swigging Pepto Bismol--the deer will be laughing at you, however. :)

Does this plant have multiple blooms??? Do you find this in Texas, or in Kazakhstan? Or both?

From what I've read it does have multiple blooms and there are parts of Texas that it's found in but on a limited, small scale. Found more abundant in other areas. Definitely NOT Kazakhstan.

i think I detect a fellow gardener---it's considered "wild" if you mean "non-cultivated".
