Leaves are alternate and fuzzy. Edges are serrated. Stem is fuzzy, too. Stem turns purple near root joint. Crushed plant smells green. Seems to grow from root system. Didn't leave there long enough last year to know if it has flowers... Any ideas??
Thanks!

Could it be Echinachea or Rudebecka?

Definitely not either of those...I think a variety of Campanula is possible.

Blue Bells, I have them and they are hard to get rid of. Actually pretty, but the little bee's love them.
