Don’t you love it when the unexpected happens?
Ages ago, like maybe 3 or 4 years ago, I bought this bulb, rhizome whatever it is … so long ago now I can’t remember what it was classified as….. Maybe it was a summer lily?
I can remember that the packet said it would grow leaves, which would then die down, then a flower would come. Well for about 3 years or more (which due to the anticipation has felt like about T E N!!!) green leaves would grow, then they would die down and then …… N O T H I N G!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely nothing … then the next year, more greenery would grow and die down.
I really don’t know how this little critter survived because generally it’s survival of the fittest in the pot plant garden and space is not wasted on under performers!
This year a miracle happened!
I came out one day recently and nearly fell over when I saw that something had grown and that something looked like it might be a flower ….. see the photo above.
Which opened up into this:
Well worth the wait! This unexpected beauty made me smile.
