Need a little sunshine today?
Here is another "side of the road" plant that is blooming in my yard now. We found this one on a walk in the woods that belonged to a friend. We came across an old homeplace and dug up a one of these to bring home. They tolerate wet soil which works out well here on the cypress swamp. We even have some planted at the edge of the water.

The bright yellow bloom against the dark green foliage is just so pretty. The only downside to this plant is the rate at which it reproduces. It has to be divided often thereby making it a perfect "pass-along" plant as well!
