AAn at­trac­tive but rarely grown gar­den plant, Pro­boscidea louisian­ica is a sparsely branched an­nual with rather hairy, glan­du­lar leaves (which have an un­pleas­ant smell) and large, fox­glove-like flow­ers in clus­ters at the ends of the stems. It’s com­monly called the uni­corn plant be­cause of its large, curved seed­pods.
