Mature purple spurge, Euphorbia dulcis, looks normal enough, but its offspring look as though they wandered off the set of a 1950s horror movie.
Other plants that start out looking a little freaky include Solomon's seal and ginger, which looks like a pile of moldy potato chips when it starts to emerge.
This Asiatic lily was covered by leaves, so it came up pale instead of green, like this one.
I can't remember the identity of this plant, but I think it's another kind of Asiatic lily.
