Thanks Gloria
It's nice to see both the plants and what they attract (catwise) upon their foliage.
Amazing how some of the least pretty of the cats turn into such beautiful butterflies!

I've never seen a Pawpaw although a few of those in the local garden groups here had tried their hand at germinating them. Every now and then I'd hear about their success (Few and far between but oh how excited they'd be in the telling) I don't think they ever took nor lived through our Winters. Most of our area is a Zone 4 which is way too cold for them.

Myself I MIGHT be able to squeak one in and have it survive being a bit warmer alongside the bay. I sneak in at a zone 5 but I've never ran into any for sale. It sounds like they mature quickly. How long before they bore fruit? Was it 4-5 years? They sound real tasty banana custard creamy like.
