Both of these plants are in Kelowna ... #1 - this one just appeared this year, it has no leaves but had these beautiful flowers ... its just finishing it bloom right now. #2 - the stalks are full with water, and they self seed (the seed pods are formed at this time of year - Sept - and if you touch them they exlode sending the seeds out). The photo I submitted is when they have their flower which is from about June to August. Millions of thanks ... it's in none of my gardening books!! Sarah.
