Is it a weed or flower?

aiimagesApril 22, 2014

Please help me identify this plant. It has started popping up in my trail and in my perennial beds. I have planted the area with wildflowers but I just don't recognize this one. It has a very thick root (if that helps at all?) and almost looks like a lily when it comes up. I want to kill it off right away if it's a weed or transplant it to a different area if it would be pretty. Any ideas?

Maybe an aster.

Looks like it could be a day lily. I'd move it to a different location and watch what happens. You can always dig it out later. Good Luck!

I think this is a weed. I've had it pop-up in areas where I know I haven't planted it. I let a couple of them grow just to see what they were, but they never got any flowers. Well, actually one of them got 2-3 very tiny purple flowers in the center - but you'd never know it unless you stood right over it.

Now I pull them up when they appear.

Could it be knotweed? That can have a lily-like appearance when it first emerges.

Definition of weed is essentially unwanted and annoying. It is definitely not any lily or daylily I have ever seen. It also looks rhizomous.
