5 plants that look like Donald Trump’s hair

It’s anyone’s guess what inspires the Donald’s famous ‘do. It very well could be one of these five plants. You’re welcome.

1. Mexican feather grass

It’s drought tolerant, it’s gorgeous, but some people think it’s invasive and should be uprooted to make room for natives. We have a feeling that Donald might agree.

2. Bonsai

Bonsai, like the comb over, is an ancient art form especially popular with the older crowd.

3. Cockscomb

Though cockscomb is an annual flower, it reseeds freely. That means it keeps showing up—even when you think it’s gone.

4. Yellow starthistle

Like any weed, it’s quick to dominate the field.

5. Chrysanthemum

Some call them ugly. Some call them gaudy. But we appreciate mums for their big fall show and uniqueness among other blooms.

    I love the comparison. With as much money that guy has, you would think that he would take his barber’s advise and get a better “do”. Too much one of a kind looks stupid in his case.

    Too funny. Thanks for the laugh. And for those with no sense of humor: Get over yourselves.

    Oh Susan, get the stick out of your….! It’s all in fun. I thought it was very humorous. Most people in their right minds don’t want Trump for POTUS anyway.

    Well there you have it! I feel sorry for the Mexican Sage Brush, a rightfully beautiful grass being compared to DT’s fair locks, but there is some poetic justice there and so for that I am deeply appreciative. Also loved all the wonderful plant info! Totally brilliant. Keep up the good work!

    Good political satire is not about a specific party but about spoofing what is going on in the political scene. Thanks for a great laugh after a long day!

    Do you call dwarf plants similar to short people?

    I did not know that Sunset was a political magazine. Now I have another “like” to “unlike”. Do your magazine a favor and skip the insulting political satire.
