I admit to being a bit crazy when it comes to plants. If I see something coming up in the lawn that looks like it will be torn to shreds by the evil blades of the mower, I perform a plant rescue. I dig it up, ever-so-carefully, and find a nice place in a flower bed for it. I have come across some interesting specimens this way.
Last month I came across what I thought MIGHT be a small columbine in the lawn - but the leaves didn't look quite right and the little plant had tuberous roots. I thought, well, it might be something interesting, and so I moved it to a small shady area under the Windmill palm. I went out to check on it today and what did I find? Well, I will be darned if it isn't a native Wind-flower. How exciting! (Ok, well I think it is exciting anyway)I just love it when fun things pop up in my yard. That is exactly how I ended up with gagillions of Pink Evening Primrose. One randomly appeared in my front bed, I left it alone and now they are everywhere!
