Asphodelus damascena flowering in its second year

I bought this from Mike Bordelon at the Beltsville Garden Club Sale last year. It seemed happy in the island bed by the street in Adelphi. Sandy soil and dry make some sense I guess for a Syrian/Turkish/Lebanese native. The silver/gray basal foliage is nice too. Mike grows modest  numbers of a variety of interesting, uncommon, or just very nice perennials and offers them twice a year at the BGC sales. There's another sale this Saturdayat 8:00 am at High Point High School (on Powder Mill Road west of I-95).
