natural weirdness

This crazy flower is called a Cephalanthus 'Sputnik.' Isn't it fabulously weird??? The spiky flowers are full of nectar, so it's a good way to attract butterflies & bees to your garden. The natural habitat is wet, boggy soil. This sucker is huge: it can reach 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide!
