I have them in my yard too, had them for years. Good take up space plant for me.
Hmmmm, similar to a Pencil Plant?!
Do the leaves stay narrow like that? Do they have any fragrance?
Looks like it may be a succulent, by the shape of the leaves and the notches on them. Do they ever bloom?
I get these in my yard, from what I believe to be bird droppings! They grow into the most interesting pink flower...kind of like a poppy. Each year is different, they don't always show up! I kind of look forward to them!
Hello all, and thanks for the replies! It just appeared, I have no idea where it came from, was there when we did the beds for spring clean up.....It is def not a succulent, in new pic you can clearly see woody stem and a bud ( I cropped the pic more ) Can't really see if the leaves are serrated, will bring out my magnifying glass when I go out to plant :)
@Linda E could you snap a pic for me as a comparison? Nope @Peggy, nope not a Pencil Plant, I do have on of those though :D
OOOh @Andi hurtig ! I hope you are right! Do they like sunny or shady and have you ever attempted to move them?
I find them in the sun...since I'm in Montana...it gets HOT here, and they do just fine...the leaves look like they could be kind of "rubbery", right? Just let it go...they are truly pretty!!
looks like a variety of sedum to me. wonderful pink - turning to deep rose colored flowers late summer/fall. Compact growth & will "pop" up around the yard. Just transplant to where you want it. Def. in the succulent family, I'm in PA (Poconos) & even have wintering cactus here!
lol...oh you're talking about the "twiggy" thing..sorry! LOL )
Ice plant, maybe?
Not ice plant! I keep a little "plot" in my yard for "surprises" and "not sure's"...sometimes I get a lovely surprise....sometimes I just have an interesting weed!
Google a sedum called Autumn Joy and compare it to this. Looks a lot like it to me.
Im also saying some kinda sedom...I live in Jersey Shore,PA i have autumn joy(sedum) they are perennials I divide mine up about every other year. They are a beautiful burgandy color in the fall.
@June and @Jenny Pecchia the plant in question is not a sedum although there is a sedum in the picture and it is Autumn Joy lol! Plant in question is that scraggly looking one.
Jenny I had no idea there was a town called Jersey Shore in PA... I live at the Jersey Shore, near Long Beach Island :)
