Weeds or precious perennials?

Posted by lennon2 R.I. (My Page) on

So often I've pulled up the last year's perennials that I'm letting things come up this year.

These four plants in front of the hostas are suspect. (From left, 2 and 4 are the same plant. There are lots of them, only in my perennial beds.)

Can anyone identify them, or at least tell me if I should pull or coddle them? Especially 2 & 4, since they're rampant.

1 and 3 look like a weed to's tough to tell from a photo.

Some of them look like some kind of Dock. Perhaps broad leaf dock or curly dock.

You can look at curly dock at:

2 and 4 are some type of aster. The one that bob64 thinks is dock I believe is a plant that has a flower? that looks like a shaving brush. Sorry no name.
