A few months ago, my wife and I decided to remodel our front yard. This meant pulling out a number of overgrown shrubs, eliminating some trees and reshaping some flower beds.
After the work was done, we left the flowerbeds bare for a while thinking about what landscaping we wanted to take over. During this time, plants with rather strange shapes have grown. It was one of the most interesting plants I have ever seen. In fact, the plant grew in five different places on our newly manicured beds. These plants had been hidden away for years, hidden under heavy overgrown shrubs.
