I've tried to start many things in this bed and suddenly up popped a very helathy vigorous leafy plant I don't recognize. Usually if something is a weed, I have hundreds, but there's just this one in the back yard, plus what might be it's baby brother in the front yard.
Do you think this tiny thing is the same plant? Or, what else might it be? The bed it appeared in has had fewer things attempted, but it doesn't look at all like anything I remember trying to start there.
P.S. I just had to show off my big Pacific Giant Delphinium, next to that ?weed?
It took me a few years to get one seedling survivor past the Slug Army, but now he's too big for the slugs to destroy.
All but one of the photos here have leaves with very patterned edges (for example ).
But m y plant has very plain, large oval leaves. I do have spines along the edges once my leaves get big, but no patterned, cut edges. (indentations?)
Also, the closest photo in Plant Search to mine shows big spikes along the mid-rib, an d I don't recall spines on the mid-rib. I'll look again tonight. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/14459/ This message was edited Jun 11, 2012 11:58 AM
