Pennsylvania, cotton: Quite by accident,I had purchased some cotton while touring the south. I was going to use the bolls, to make craft projects, particularly angel Christmas tree ornaments.
A few of the bolls were not so pretty, and I disposed of them at edge of backyard flower garden.
Never having seen a cotton plant when it was in leaf and flowering I saw this unusual shaped leaf and memory of disposing of the bolls made me think that perhaps it was cotton.
Much enjoyment, watching the progress of the plant, I transplanted it to a full sun location and now, the bolls are splitting but our winter season is here so not sure if the cotton will become fluffy or not. But it was fun watching the growing process.
I hope to have a few plants next summer. The flowers are pretty, and created much interest, among family and friends.
