I haven't posted in a while since everything went dormant for winter (if you can even say Fl. had a winter this year) lol. any way. I had a tun that a lotus was growing super well in But I moved and wasnt ableto take it with me immediately and unfortunately it dried out and died:( but now this new plant is growing there. I dont know how it got there it is a round tub that sits next to my pond. my pond has lillies floating misc. plants, arrow heads and iris's. at irst I thought they were iris's but i have no clue how that would happen since my iris's havent flowered yet. these plants are about 3 feet tall already and look like really thick strong blades of grass. they are spreading underneath the soil and popping out new shoots from rhizomes*? here's some pictures...thanks so much!!
