Got a couple of mystery plants. One is new, one is old. I have a guess for both, but I’m never sure.
The new one is a several ones all sprouting near where a small sunflower grew last year. Is it another sunflower? Or a Black-Eyed Susan? It might even be a coneflower. Or something else, eager to prove me wrong. I will wait for it to flower before I call it.
The old one is a shrub flowering very prettily as it does every spring. It’s clearly one of those robust varieties that have been around for years. It grows in a corner that it really hard to get at, so looking at it from a distance and wondering if it’s a mock orange is the closest I can get.
