A MYSTERY FLOWER IN MY GARDEN

 

About a week ago I was wondering the gardens looking for things to photograph as I do a lot of and came upon this pretty little flower in our garden beside the driveway ! Now that garden is a bit over grown with this and that from the people that lived here before us, but when I saw the flower I asked myself what type is this ? Myself couldn’t answer. I haven’t been able to find what type it is. Is it a domestic flower or a wild flower I have know idea but all I know is it was pretty, what I did was since there were a few plants of it was take one and put it in my garden under my birch tree and it is doing well ,it seems to like to grow around trees as that's where it was when I found it under our large maple tree at the end of our driveway ! So this mystery continues  for me as to what this flower is !

OH, if I can find my pictures on file when I went to the garden center, I took a pic of the very same flower and the pot had the name in it. I want to say Bell or Cone flower but I dont think that correct. You can see the photo here http://simplesouthernhappiness.blogspot.com/search/label/Gardening under my gardening catagory but I cut the name off.

Yes, Tammy is correct, it's a Balloon Flower, a Perennial, so it should return next year !
Beautiful....

How very pretty! I've seen the balloon flower just before it breaks open and it looks like its name. :) At least I think that is what this is.... Very nice images.
