Oenothera speciosa is the thug plant to beat all thug plants which is hard to imagine by looking into its ethereally beautiful face. The plant's wild habitat includes rocky prairies, open woodlands, slopes, roadsides, meadows and disturbed areas. While it makes an attractive garden plant, care should be taken as it can become invasive, spreading by runners and seeds, and forming colonies of considerable size.

Because of the unsavory diet and habits of the California vulture we tend to see them as a kind of gangster bird or outlaw. This vulture is covered with jewels and Blood Diamonds - diamonds mined in war zones and sold to finance conflicts, and thereby profit warlords and diamond companies around the world.
