In a rocky area of my garden, for a few weeks I was pulling up little shoots that kept coming up through the rocks. They were different than the usual weeds that grace my garden, very tough and difficult to dislodge. Then I went out of town for a week. Imagine my surprise when I returned and saw these “weeds” blooming as volunteer lobelia plants from last year’s garden. What a shame I pulled up so many of them before I saw them bloom! The Master Gardener has been busy again.
