Hi everyone,

I am a new member to this forum and I hope to learn and share my garden experience with all of you.
I live in Minnesota and this year I found this in my garden- which I don't recognize what type of plant this is. Is it a safe plant or something I should remove? I don't think it is tulip but what do i know.

I appreciate any help.

It looks like a tulip. Sometimes the local squirrels are also gardeners; they steal bulbs from one yard and plant them in your yard.

Yes, its why my daughter's tulips have mysteriously relocated themselves to her compost pile.

Tulips, Welcome! to NGA and MN!

When Tulips haven't been fed they don't bloom and and get weird like that. Get some Bulb Booster plant food and give them a good feeding. Next year you'll have flowers!

I moved it to the Plant ID forum even though it's been IDed, that way it can be marked as 'Solved'.
