Rose - Rosa spp. Other than the green rose mentioned here, this is the only rose bush we have. It was here when we moved in, and honestly it looks terrible. It has one stalk what produces a few flowers each year, but it's just not a healthy plant. I think roses are beautiful, but I don't know much about their care other that they can be a challenge to grow due to pest and disease problems. We also really don't like dealing with the thorns. We will probably remove it from this flowerbed in the fall, as the azaleas are drowning it out anyway.
Amaryllis - Amaryllis spp. I planted 2 of these in our shade bed several years ago, the leaves have always come up but this is the first year they actually bloomed. And wow, the blooms are enormous and vivid. I think J's mom gave us these in a pot mixed with some other bulbs.
Biting Stonecrop - Sedum acre. This comes up in the middle of the back yard, I don't know how it got there, but it's really pretty when it blooms. I just recently planted a red variety that I hope will do as well.
