Here's the flower stalk, it has never looked any different, meaning I've never seen a bloom.

This is something in Lamiaceae (Dead Nettle family) due to it's stalk and calyces. I also think the leaf markings may be a varient colouring rather than something that occurs in the entire species. I'll have a look.

Salvia lyrata - Lye leaved Sage?

Not all the leaves are deeply lobed and they have a leaf colouration on some plants.

I think that may be it...check out this link http://www.nativesoftexas.com/llsage.html, it has always looked like a salvia to me but I've never seen flowers. Maybe because it is directly in the path the puppy runs...lol it's sure sturdy!

I'm sure this is right Baa! Another good job! By the way...D oblongifolia (Twinflower?) is gone. I was digging out in that border a couple of weeks ago and found it spreading madly by thick runners several feet long...that worried me. I'll leave it to the wildflower meadows :)

It doesn't look far wrong, but then I'm at the disadvantage of seeing only 2 photos rather than a plant *G*

I suppose we'll have to wait until it flowers now to be sure!
