"Zanadu" ??

Dear gardener friend,

The plant you are describing seems so beautiful, really! Do you think you could probably learn its botanical name? Because I am of Mediterranean origin and of European gardening knowledge only. "Zanadu" is probably a native plant of your country?? I would so much love to learn more things about the beautiful plant you describe...and of you! Where do you live? Where you live right now is your country of origin as well?

Hope to "see" you soon!

Dear garden oldie, new to the net,
Did your funny plant thing look like a fat extremely dull in pigment asparagus spear? But obviously not to be eaten! Cos I get funny things that look like that, they seem to have no green in them at all, and they appear from nowhere.
Like Liza I wonder - what's Zanadu?
Cheers, and welcome to 2006 which has to be going to be the best gardening year ever!!!!!
