I’m sure I found the starts for this flower early this spring. They tempted me with their beautiful photos. After planting the bulbs, I forgot about them all summer long, and never noticed the gladiolus-type leaves growing. I definitely like this sort of surprises in the garden. Wouldn’t it be nice if they came back next year? We’ll just have to wait and see. If they really like where they are planted they may multiply. That is Lemon Queen Helianthus peeking in on the right. Hollyhock leaves are on the left.
