A volunteer plant showed up in a flower bed at work. These are corporate flower beds with Stella D’Oro daylillies, dwarf yews, and well-trimmed flowering plum trees. I noticed what looked like the biggest dandelion seed puff I’d ever seen.
I had to look online to see what it was. Salsify. A root vegetable that tasks somewhat likes oysters, supposedly. I’m regularly reminded how much variety there is in our planet’s flora.
I don’t think this was planted intentionally — there are two plants in the bed — but they haven’t been pulled out by the corporate “gardeners.” Unlike a home gardener, maybe they don’t know it doesn’t belong.
