These are growing in my neighbors yard. We have no clue what they are??? It has a really thick stem like a sunflower would. We thought it was a weed but there are about 6-7 and theyre spaced apart perfectly as if planted purposely. Please help solve the plant mystery
I got this from a fellow gardener down south who didn't know what it was either. When I moved back to NY I brought some with me praying it would survive the first hard winter. It did and it puts on such a show that neighbors ask what it is and where I got, never seen it at any nursery. Notice it reaches the second floor over hang on a typical high ranch.

@ erica, thanks I'm lookin it up now, it did thrive doug and it really puts on a show in early
fall, I have a few things that fall bloom so when every one else on my block fading out, i'm still going strong.
Do you ever make something and just can't help smiling when you are done? That is how it was with this project.. I painted random pieces of scrap wood, trim pieces, pallet wood and Bri
Waxed the window frame with light brown. The scrap wood and the window frame were free :).
I wasn't sure how much I needed, just painted what I thought might work. None of the scrap pieces I had were long enough to go across the whole window so I knew I would have to cut them into sections.
The next thing I had to decide was how to attach the wood to the very narrow interior window strips. This problem led to the happy solution of running the wood in opposite directions. I used the nail gun to attach the pieces, had to shoot straight and did miss you a few, but only a few.
This really is a relatively simple project and so fun to see it come together!
