tradescantia are a love hate thing with me.  they are lovely then get battered, need supporting, snails love em.  however, a couple of discreet supports before they reach full growth solves the battered bit and a nightly trek with the torch solves the mollusc bit.  theres a yellow variety with magenta flowers....sounds ok but is nauseating.  sorry if anyone is growing it

Thyme and teasel.

Didn't realise you can have outside tradescantia, love this as an indoor plant, used to grow a lot of it

Thalictrum is lovely - I had  a purple one which worked like Verb Bonariensis. The buds were like tiny bunches of grapes. Lovely. I love the name too

Taxus- for structure it's hard to beat.

Yellow with magenta pet hate. Acid green foliage yes but not yellow.

Funny bunch aren't we!

Can I have Tea? It does come from a plant....
