These have popped up in my new bed. Don't know whether to befriend them or not. Any ideas what this is?

Hey, I have some of those too. I thought they might be petunias.

Look like a friend. Having weeded flower seedlings out before I check the main lawn before I pull anything out. I don't have petunias, but baby black eyed susans look sort of like that.

I don't know what it is, but those low shoots are unusual, and it does resemble black eyed susan.

Well, it finally started blooming this week. This is a brand new bed put in by a landscaper. It's petunias - the bright purple ones. Have no idea how they got there. But, I'll enjoy the gift.

Wow! I love that color. I've always had Wave Petunias in pots, never thought about putting them in the ground. They are beautiful.

I have just read on a companion planting site that the petunia was beneficial to all other plants did not see one negative on it so today I am getting down to the local greenhouse and get a bunch of petunias..

Cool, Lynne! I was going to guess petunias! I grew my first petunias from seeds this year. It really felt special! Yours are gorgeous and especially nice being free :) Janet
The first pic is from January, the others are from today. They were supposed to be all purple but a pink sneaked in there :)
