These are pretty wild - first I have seen in the six years on the property. Not sure what they are but they are pretty and unique!

Hey Artie;
That is called Bear grass.
Only blooms every 7 years!

Mr. Googley says bear grass is in the western mountain states, and I am mid-Atlantic.  Thinking maybe not bear grass?

Well then, sorry about that Artie!    It sure looks like Beargrass. I even asked Liz and she agreed ... shows how much we know!
Let us know what it turns out to be.

Never know Thomas, could be!  Perhaps we have made a botanical discovery!  Won’t be the first time the inter web is wrong...

Black cohosh would be my guess, also, going from what i have in my garden here, in the PNW :)  I understand it has medicinal value ;)
