No freedom for cup plant

Hello cup plant (Silphium perfoliatum), my big native beauty!


You're sort of an early one in my garden, emerging vigorously and almost crowding yourself out.

***

I'm sorry that I must keep you in a cage, behind the cruelly cold welded wire.


I wish I could let you roam free like your children, basking in the sunshine up on the ledge next to the pond...


...where they can even hold hands...


...or play hide-and-seek with the violets in the lawn.


Your offspring from years past have found a temporary home of sorts...


...with me, near the house...


But alas, I just can't let you have your freedom.





You know what will happen if I do.
