Do You Know this Seedling/Plant?

dyhgarden(7b)June 18, 2010

I have planted a lot of seeds in the last few years. I do not recognize this seedling. It is coming up in such a way that it looks like something that I planted, rather than a weed -- of course, I could be wrong! Another knowledgeable gardener was here last week and we wondered if it was from a past Rose of Sharon that I pulled out because the deer ate it.

Other "lost" plants among my candidates include chelone (plant) and there are seeds of so many plants that I can't recall all of them!

Do you know what it is? There are two that are over 3 feet high and slender with more stems coming out of the base. No buds at this point.

The shot of the shorter seedlings resemble my dwarf shasta daisy seedlings 'Silver Princess.' Could it be a leucanthemum of some sort? I'm having a hard time seeing the taller shot.

I agree with Lisa - the short one looks like a daisy. The tall one isn't clear and looks like a different plant -something weedy...

Ah ha! I sowed Alaska shasta daisy seeds in November!

The leaves on the seedlings are so much wider than my mature leucanthemum x superbum 'Paladin' or my 'Broadway Lights', that I didn't make that connection.
