    It looks like a thistle plant gone beserk. 🙂

      The plant is still very low, like 18″, and the bloom stalk is probably 3′ or more. It hasn’t grown up and out like crazy, probably because of the shade. I’m surprised that it bloomed!

    Wow! How cool is that, and what a great color. I agree it does look thistle-like, does / did it smell of anything?
