@treefrog44 This is the only other pic I have of them at this time. Most of them have died back.

They grow kind of in a bunch. They look like they've come back a few times. They started blooming again a bit, but I didn't take pics. I'll try to get another one tomorrow.

Can't see the leaves...break a leaf off if a white milky sap comes out you have swamp milkweed :)
