First Year Echinacea from Seed Looks Like a Weed
I planted some Echinacea seeds I bought at the store, and up came some plants right where I planted them, but the plants look like weeds, not like the other Echi's I already have growing. After the weedlike plants came up, some echi-like leaves popped out of the ground about an inch away from the weed shaft! I am hoping the weedlike thing is really a first-year Echi, and the leaves at the bottom are Echi leaves that will grow into a normal Echi plant.
It is supposed to be a Purple Coneflower, btw.
Any clues welcome !!!
