frosted cup plant...

frosted Silphium perfoliatum...

An April morning sun salutation.

For those of you, who unlike the author, are not in a constant state of learning and then as quickly forgetting the scientific names of plants, may God bless you. This is the same plant that I was watering last year at the whopping rate of one-tenth of a mile per hour. When a guy spends fifteen hours in a Bobcat his mind has only so many directions to go. I used that time to actually put to memory Silphium perfoliatum.

The view from the Bobcat watering cup plants last summer.

I had hoped that the harsh winter of 2013-14 and the late start that we gave these plants wouldn't be their doom. A few days ago, I saw the first Silphium peak through the cold, wet soil. It would appear that we all have truly made it out of winter. I will try and keep you posted as to how my study of scientific names go and to the progress of the cup plant.


  1. you guys have a great sight keep up the good work please share with valmont in valley nebraska a state that needs to restore trees thanks

  2. Looking forward to seeing the fruitfulness of the team's hard work :)

  3. These plants will grow really fine because you guys are taking a lot of care of them. Will love to see how they gray so looking forward to seeing what will happen in the coming months.

  4. By the way, I consider myself very fast in learning, but I can't remember the names of the plants at all. To do that, I use Cheap Cheap Dissertation Writing Service and I would recommend this to everyone who feels uncomfortable with Botney.
