I need to see the flowers. Are they the little puff balls or are they little inch long yellow trumpets?

As a matter of fact, this plant reoccurs every year but I've never seen any flowers.

:D I don't think he has any skunks to show you. :D:p :D

Now you are dating yourself. How many people know who flower is? Pepe Le Pew?

I was thinking Bambi, which was talked about on another thread. I don't have to date myself... I have a husband to date. :p :D (Yes, I know your actually referring to age. I just happen to also think older is better. :cool: )

Burr clover has yellow flowers too. What shape and size are the flowers? Are they about an inch long and trumpet shaped or are the little yellow clusters of mall ball shaped flowers?
