    Hi there;
    This morning as I was weeding my day lily bed I found this little sprout growing on top of the soil, I'm not sure if it is a Liatris of not, I checked the following web site
    and it didn't say if the plant grows from bulb or what.

    I do have some of these plants growing in another perenial garden in another area, but i got it at a garden center and just planted it out of the ot without looking at the base.
    I have planted it in a small pot to see what comes of it. I plan on keeping a photo journal of my little plant to see how it goes.

    Thanks for any assisstance tat anyone can give.
    The third pics is day 4, #4 is Day 6 and #5 is day 7. Upon doing some research this is a liatris, the root is not a bulb but a little fat tuber. It was probably dropped of into my lily garden by a bird thinking it was a seed.

    Too early to tell you what your bulb is;but Liatris is a perennial and does not grow from a bulb.
