Can someone tell me what flower is this?
I was walking my dog at the greenway and I came across this flower near the footpath. It was love at first sight.
I know it's some kind of "weed" because I cut off the top of the plant, flower and all, and put the stem in a bottle with water in my kitchen and a few HOURS later it already had roots which are longer today. I want to be careful where I plant it because I don't want it to take over; which it will probably do anyway, I imagine. But I wanted to know the name so I could at least research it a little and see how to best handle it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
