Flower of the Day: July 8, 2021. Mystery seed plant

This was a mystery we planted. I don’t even know where we got the seed; it was unlabeled in our seeds bin. Months later sprout this very tall plant. Does anyone know what this could be? Kids think either corn or wheat.

Thanks Cee for hosting the FOTD challenge! Hope you and all my awesome readers have a wonderful week.

    1. I’ll be interesting to see what sprouts if it does. As of now, it’s just a tall stalk of greens. I commented earlier to a fellow blogger that I don’t even know how I got those seeds. I’ll update if anything new turns up.
      Hope you are doing well and enjoying July!

      1. I hope you’ll find out soon, Esther! I’ve been going to the gym for almost two months. Mostly swimming. Our church fellowship group started meeting on June 20. I’ve gone to several small get together or luncheon. It’s great to see them in person.
        How are you doing?

  1. I hope that it flowers into something for you. However it looks an awful lot like wild grass (as opposed to the well tamed lawns of the suburbs lol) have you tried to google lens it? Might give you a better idea as to what it is. πŸ™‚

    1. That’s a good guess Jae-lyn! It does resemble some type of grass. I’ll need to see if it sprouts anything. Wait-and-see mystery plant.
      I should google lens it…or check on a plant app.
      Hope you are doing well!

  2. Hmm – I was thinking a type of ornamental grass, so I saved the image and did Google Images and it said serving ware. πŸ™‚ Keep us posted what it ends up being, okay?

    1. That’s an interesting guess Linda. I have no idea. Google search can sometimes be hilarious. I once searched an image of a tree trunk to see what type of tree it was. The result popped up “tree trunk.” lol
      I wonder where I even got the seed in the first place. When I find out more, I’ll write a post about it.

      1. I know people use that for wildflowers on their phone – I just have a flip phone so I have to wait til I’m online at home. Then I got a small wildflower book recently to try and learn them (not very successful though).

      2. There’s so many to learn and so many varieties!! Unless it’s a common or well-known type, the app it seems gives options that you have to scroll through and decide which one it is. Ugh… I can’t believe what I’m saying. It’s amazing that technology can even pinpoint options and here I am complaining that it isn’t the exact one. yikes.

      3. I don’t have a smart phone and I’ve seen the wildflower sites online and you have to put the type of leaf and “cuts” in the leaf, type of petal etc. Lots of variables … it gets exhausting. I hope the book will be easy to follow – it’s been in print for decades and only Michigan wildflowers so hoping it narrows it down. Today I saw a birdfeeder on Facebook that recognizes the bird and tells you what kind of bird it is. That’s different, but wouldn’t you buy a feeder and food that attracts a specific type of bird? I love the little goldfinch I see every morning – someone must have a thistle seed feeder.
