I still have no idea what this plant is, but now it is opening with white flowers.
It looks like a type of hyacinth (my absolute favorite)!
I was pretty close to the plant, and I did not notice any smell.
So, it remains a mystery–but a wonderful one at that! It has never bloomed for me before this year. Now, however, I know the secret–water, and a great deal of it!
Here is a puzzler for all of you! I purchased this plant many, many years ago.
I have no idea what it is! I vaguely recall something about an annual, but I don’t think that can be right because it comes back every year. Granted, it is planted near a hot tub, and the heat from that might protect it.
And this year it is doing something new! It made a flower! This plant has never done this. I vaguely remember thinking it didn’t like water so much, so I held off on the watering. But with all of the rain we’ve had this year, it blossomed. It is kind of hard to see in the picture, but it almost looks like a tiny pineapple.
Isn’t it amazing that plants we’ve had forever can still surprise us?
Any thoughts on what this might be?
