Mystery Plant

dave_olympia(7B)July 3, 2009

Scads of these come up in one place in my garden every year. I pulled them until this year, assuming they were weeds. I left a couple of them alone this year and the "harebellish" purple flowers are pretty nice. I don't recall planting this. The plant is about 18" and the small light green leaves (color of granny smith apple) are slightly serrated and a little bit fuzzy. Does anyone know this one? Thanks in advance:

Hey, thanks plantknitter! Guess that means I did plant it. I've got to start keeping better records.

But you might want to keep a wary eye on it. It's a rapid spreader!
