Fallugia paradoxa, Apache Plume

The flowering Fallugia paradoxa was astonishing this year. This is not the flower but the plumes of the seed. The plumes emerge from the white with a pinkish glow which then turns white. There are a few flowers on through out the summer. This has been growing in my yard since about 2000. It was started from seed, transplanted into a tube, and then transplanted to its present location.
