Silent Sunday

My friend Joan gave me this perennial.
I will ask her the name of it and add.
Update :Bear’s Britches(breeches) is the common name . It is a wildflower that grows in Pa woods. Needs sun to flower as it is doing now. I will look up the Latin name and get back in to you later.

Second update Ruth it is acanthus mollis. It needs partial shade and very wet soil. It needs some sun to bloom well. It can be invasive so you have to watch it and pull out stems and roots if it starts to expand. I have not found it to be a problem in that regard but I don’t let it expand much

And then my sister just sent me a photo from her Hudson River Walk today in New York City

  1. I’ve never heard of this wildflower before…I think it’s beautiful! I wonder if it has a scent?

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
