RE: Since we are on id'ing and stuff....


Well, at least there's comfort in company.  I planted two groupings of
hardy cyclamen this spring only to find it's clearly a rabbit delicacy
here.  One grouping is identifiable only by the solitary leaf remaining.
A perfect lovely planting gone overnight. Darn rabbits!

As if all this rain hasn't been enough to fret about - our water gage
measured 6.5" last Friday night.  Truly a torrential downpour that
lasted seven hours.  I've never seen anything like it.

Well, Donna,

Does look chewed up, more like slugs than rabbit to me.  Critters tend
to bite more cleanly tho' it could be rabbit gnawing + slugs.  I have
one Pulmonaria that seems to be somebody's idea of a good meal. 
Now is the 2nd year someone has come and chomped the center foliage out
of it and it ain't deer...I know that for sure; has to be either rabbit
or groundhog. I am NOT pleased!  Whoever it is and I are going to have
to have a conference about what is and is not on the menu!

> last is this a weed or what?!? Has a definite red streak on the
edges.

Looks mighty like some sort of lily to me, really.  Are you sure you
didn't plant a lily near that spot one year or other?  The only other
thing it more or less resembles is the progeny of Carex 'Sparkler', who
are green, not variegated.  But, from your image, it looks more
succulent about the foliage and stem than a Carex.

I'd leave it and see if it blooms, when it will be easier to ID.
