|Description||This photo was taken in our backyard in May of 2017 just as the plant reached its peak. Within a week, the flowers had faded and began to curl or fall off, and the plant itself was leaning further over. We had first discovered it in February and were contemplating taking it out as we had never experienced one before and thought it may be a weed. Thankfully we forgot about it until it began to grow and sprout. Once the first flowers began to bloom I photographically documented it's continued growth until the final picture in mid-June.|
