Name That Plant Gardening Contest

Today’s Name That Plant contest features a plant in my yard that is a beautiful surprise every spring because it grows without any extra care.

To enter today’s contest, study the picture, read the clues and write your guess about this plant in the comments section before midnight MDT tonight. The winner will be selected at random from all the correct entries and will receive a cool prize from aHa!ModernLiving. Good luck!

This plant is an heirloom passed down to family members since the 1880s.

It was brought to Colorado in the 1960s.

It was discovered by a plant propagator while he drove around a Northern Colorado city and released to home gardeners around 2006.

This plant is said to grow 8-12 feet tall, but it’s likely it can grow almost double that size.

It’s an extremely hardy perennial and is rated for Zones 4-8.

Once established, it needs no special care, except some winter watering to keep the soil from completely drying out so it’s good for Xeriscape gardens.

It starts its simply scary show of blooms in June with yellow flowers in the center of round leaves.
