    Dear Experts...

    Ok, this is a tough one, as I don't have a pic. I will describe it the best I can, but I'm skeptical as the people at the greenhouse had no idea what I was talking about.

    I thought it was a variety of hosta, but I think thats been ruled out. This time of year it is a small dense green mound. Later in the summe/fall it has flowers that grow straight up that are a marroon/dark red in color. Any ideas?

    I know of place where a few are planted, so tomorrow I'll try to drive by and snap a picture quick and post it.

    Procut,

    Not trying to be a jerk but the reason no one has replied IMO is that, that was a poor "I will describe it the best I can." A pic would be wonderful. But if not give us some other things besides a green mound and red flowers. Leaf shape/size, overall plant size, light green/dark green/silvery green leaf color, herbaceous or woody, describe the flowers a little if you can to, and any other distinguishing characteristics. I will try to help you out but we need a little more info.

    Matt

    I know the desciption was terrible, but I thought I'd give it try thinking someone might read it and say "yeah, I know what it is"

    I'm actually a little embarressed, as it hit me this morning that it is a type of mum. DUH!!!! Just kind of blanked out I guess.
