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.
