I have a large bush in my new yard. It looks a lot like pineapple sage, but from what I read its much too early for it to have buds.
I am in the Wilmington NC area. We had hard freezes and lots of stuff is still hiding, This one is in in great form and I just don't understand how that could be. Its taller than I am. Big bush planted back in the tree line near the river.
Can you help? I am posting a picture taking a couple of days ago, first of April.
Oh, and tastes nasty (yes I did).
Thanks.

Thank you Darwin! That's the beast.
I'm beginning to see that my yard is planted for hummingbirds. We're late blooming here, but I have high hopes.
