It appeared out of no where in the spring next to my coral honeysuckle vine and has sent up a small bloom. I'll let it grow, but do not want anything invasive in that area. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thanks Arlene for the tip. Did a search, the leaves look much like this plant, but the blooms of the cutleaf coneflower are yellow. Pretty plant, you have a treat to look forward to!

Thanks Baa!! That is it! If it stays in a nice neat clump, I'll let it stay..must remember to remove the seed pods tho.
