It first showed up 3 years ago and I didn't notice it till it started to bloom. It has a color and growth habit much like lambs ears but not so soft and fuzzy. It reseeds all over the yard now and is blooming in both sun and shade. It does not seem to have a scent.

It looks like lychnis coronaria to me ...it can be weedy and once a year I contemplate pulling it out , until my eyes view those brilliant little blooms .

We have dusty miller, but not with pretty blossoms like that. Consider yourself lucky, ZM.

Chooch is 100% spot on but I have never seen that color. Keep it Zany.

Could be Lychnis flos-jovis (Flowers of Jove) originally from the European Alps, and low growing silver-grey foliage and pink to purple flower; or its larger cousin L. coronaria, Rose Campion, which is lighter grey and has larger single flowers in white or magenta.

Hi, I grew it as rose campion years ago, saving seeds would be an excellent idea. Hint, hint

LOL Looks like I might need to try to gather some seed...I have just been letting it reseed itself all over and pulling up what I don't want! I will see what I can do for collection!

could be wrong, but I think maltese cross has the red blossoms and rose campion has fushia. I have plenty of rose campion seeds, if interested.
