Can anyone id this plant? they grow wild and I cultivate them a little, let em grow in some places and not in others. I've had them the last couple of springs and sure don't remember planting them. thanks y'all.

It *kinda* reminds me of some wild Purple Dead Nettle I have growing all around... But, I am not so sure?

It looks like ajuga retans, an invasive non-native.

Yes, the photo shows Ajuga, which is pretty common in gardens, has been in gardens a long time, and persists in the wild for a long time. So even if you didn't plant it, it may be left over from some previous gardener or spread from a nearby garden. Not a native plant.
