I know what plant this is, but I wanted to share it with everyone. It is called a ‘green rose bush’. The sepals, as the plant evolved, formed the flower. The plant, according to the computer’s information, came to America from China via Scotland, which makes sense, since my mother’s family is from Scotland, and it was retrieved from my great-grandfather’s homeplace in Carroll Co, Ga. I’ve never seen another one like it, anywhere.
