After much garden upheaval last autumn, the plant pictured here wound up along a path in our side garden. And all of this spring, I assumed it was a division of Carex morrowii 'Ice Dance', since it has similar variegated foliage. Imagine my surprise when one day this summer, I turned a corner and saw it bloom. Ah yes! It's the liriope transplanted from the front when we put in the Lane! Tough plant, unassuming but charming.
