What in the world is this plant? It is a perennial without fail but does not seem to be spreading at all or dropping enough seeds to multiply. The last picture is of the tip of the long shoot coming out of the leafy base.
Thank You!

Do you know what's funny about this post? IJsbrandtGA asked about this plant last year. Time to buy some plant tags. Rolling on the floor laughing

daisyl....please forgive me. I have a medical situation that causes some memory problems. That said, i did just what u recommended. I bought some plant tags and used them. The problem is apparently black Sharpie markers get faded and washed off and much to my dismay this spring I had tons of plants that had blank white markers. I won't tell you what words came out of my mouth. Sighing!

@Janinilulu i will try to collect some seeds for you if you like?

Happy July 4th Y'all! Hurray!

Terri, use a soft lead pencil to mark your tags. Sharpie fades in the sun. Also, keep a journal of what you have planted. Adding a photo or drawing plus a map to your yard will also help.

Terri,
Those untold words often fly out of my mouth, too, like when I looked up the hardiness zone for your beautiful Silphium (starts with 7 or 8 and I'm in 6...boo hoo). Thanks so much for your generous offer, though!

This is what I do. Pencil will last for many years - and then if you want or need to reuse the tag, just use a eraser and a few drops of water on the tag and it easily comes right off! I've had these tags last over 5 years, and then been able to reuse them with this method.

I have no medical reason, but I can't remember anything it seems - and I can't find the tags on my plants even though I always attach them at the lower right side ! ???

I have my orchid tags in the pot/baskets, etc. and in a notebook with dates and other info, but the rest of my plant tags are in a pile in a corner of my bookcase. Then of course there are those that just a sticker on the pot... Sighing!

I have yards in town that have tags next to everything....
And....
Plants die, numbers of different tags get mixed up.... Thanks to the squirrels and other animals.... Still, they do help...

Pics in a blog are probably the most helpful thing for remembering plants.

On my blog, I have a search bar, I have a list of previous posts, so.... Even when I can't remember the name.... Just by going back to the same month on previous years, I can usually find the name of a cool plant previously identified.

Our brains rot... We have plant names stuck in the dark matter, and can only remember by going back to look at old entries.

I can't really use this site in the same way, yet.... No way to search my posts for specific information..... Or larger conversations.

Which brand/kind of labels do you use? I like the foil tags b/c the impression never goes away. However, they are a bit pricier. Me Crying

Hi Stone - you have no idea how tickled I am to see that you are the one requesting seeds! Your blogs are beautiful as are your Gardens and you have been so much help to me. I'd consider it an honor to send you some seeds. Now the challenge will be figuring out how and when to collect them! Sighing!

Actually....
your silphium flowers haven't even opened yet... so... not for a while, yet...

But....
the flowers look like daisies or little sunflowers... and the seeds will be self-evident.

@Muddy1 Thank you for noting that Susan. I have to figure out how to do that. Is it the same as adding a plant to my list? I apologize for my ignorance but do appreciate your help!
@Leftwood - Rick thanks for that idea. Im thinking i can get paint pens at Michaels or HOBBY lobby? What type of stake do you use, i.e. little plastic ones or the wood ones?
Thank You!
