What is this plant?

I have an unidentified plant or two. I planted this during the winter when I was less organized, any idea what it is? Pretty sure it is a perennial of some sort.

There is another that I am unsure of if you look at the post before this.

Thanks!

The second picture on that page? Looks like creeping charlie to me.

If each of those two fan-shaped leaves are individual plants, these are definitely hollyhocks.

It is something I planted myself so it's definately not creeping charlie, although it looks exactly like it. I did plant some white hollyhock so I'm guessing you're right about that ascoli. Thanks!

It does look like creeping charlie, but check the link below - a google image search on hollyhock seedlings.

Here is a link that might be useful: Hollyhock Seedling pics

Creeping charlie is my vote. If it is a ground creeping vine it is probably Creeping Charlie, get rid of it now! The Hollyhock leaves look similar but that is a plant that grows upright. I didn't have any C.charlie until I got some Hostas from my mom, who has C. Charlie. It will take over your lawn!!

The pic suggests alternate leaf arrangement (versus opposite leaves), so it cannot be creeping charlie (which has opposite leaf arrangement).

How about a campanula?

You might try the Name that Plant forum; much more traffic.

Turned out to be pansys...Who knew.

I have a pot of that plant and they are pansies that my girl scouts grew. They still have not bloomed - do you think they will?
