I have grown a Gas Plant, not albus for a long time - maybe 18-20 
years.  It is a pinky-lavender - don't know the species.  This plant
has never been vigorous, but it hangs in there - blooms every year
but the blooms don't last too long.  It just fills a spot in the perennial
bed.  I am always glad to see it bloom, but don't notice it much the
rest of the time.  I have never tried the trick of lighting a match near
it on a humid evening to see the flare of gas.  Has anyone else?  Or
is that another urban legend?  Maybe if I gave it more space - it is
crowded by Monarda, Siberian iris, peonies, hardy geraniums, etc. -
it might amount to more, but there are lots of things that might do
better if I were a neater "housekeeper."
