I love when flowers appear unexpectedly!
This “volunteer” is a
phlox variety although the leaves seem a bit veiny? I’ve included additional pics from different angles so let me know if you can I.D. it!
(Edit: 8/3/14: The comments overwhelmingly identified this plant as a Verbena, specifically Verbena canadensis ‘Rosea.’ See comment from Theshrubqueen below)
Somehow it grew in a perfectly located forgotten container! Such a nice accent for the pink Fingerpaint brom (Neoregelia spectabilis.)
…here’s another view with Gaillardia Torch Red Ember in the background.
Seed germination in unexpected spots is not as easy as you might think! Recently, my blog friend–a felllow Treasure Coast resident–George Rogers wrote a VERY informative, entertaining post on the subject.
Until next time….
