Name that Plant – Because We Can't!
January 31, 2011
Know what this plant is? Good! Please tell us! It sprouted on its own in one of our raised beds in our Heritage Garden and we don’t know what it is. It’s just over six feet tall and the newer leaves are fuzzy on both the top and bottom of the leaf. The older leaves are rough. We haven’t seen any flowers on it yet. You can click the photos for larger images or come by and see the plant for yourself – it’s right outside the ticket office.
If you’re the first to correctly identify the plant for us (post your answer as a comment on this blog or on Facebook) and we’ll give you a FREE firespike plant. Previous winners, no matter how recently they won, are eligible for this contest.
