Weed or Stachys 'Hummelo'?
I did WS some Stachys 'Hummelo' last year. This plant came up where I had WS it, and its foliage sure looks similar. But, now that it's blooming I'm pretty sure it's a standard weed I see around here but don't know the name. Surely something this unimpressive can't be Hummelo, which people rave about! I did find one picture of Hummelo's foliage close enough to see vein structure, and I think it's different. Both leaves have some notching/scallops on the edges, but I think the veining may be different. Hummelo looked like the veins went right out to the sides, whereas this one has veins that steer towards the tip. But, it was VERY hard to see the picture, so I still can't be sure. What is this thing? A sickly 'Hummelo' or a weed? If it's not 'Hummelo' then I find it ironic that it not only looks so similar but also has the same bloom time.
