There is just one flower, on one stem.
Where in the world did it come from?
I didn't buy it. I looked through my notes on trial plants I received this spring and can find nothing about a plant like this.
I have no idea what it is. It's not a mum, maybe it is a type of confused sunflower?
(Shrug) I guess I'll just enjoy it.
|Dwarf Narcissus Bulbs|
My first thought was, "Frass! I didn't mean to dig those up!"
Then I remembered that they are probably bulbs for dwarf narcissus that grow about six to eight inches tall and they are planted in the middle of the perennial flower garden where they invariably get lost among the other plants.
I want to plant some dwarf narcissus near the path I created through the new woodland garden.
Now I'm thinking, "Isn't it wonderful how I dug these bulbs up to plant someplace else? If I'd gone looking for these bulbs, I probably would have had to dig a dozen holes before I found them."
I guess it was just my lucky day.
|Symphyotrichum oblongifolium 'October Skies'|
Let's all practice saying "Symphyotrichum" instead of Aster.
Say it? Let's learn to spell it first.
This is one of those names that I don't think is going to catch on at the garden center anytime soon.
I guess we don't have to use it.
