Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

SOLVED: Is this a weed or a wildflower?

Northern Piedmont, NC(Zone 7b)

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!

arlene, my cutleaf hasn't bloomed in five years. deer used to prune it for me, but not anymore. Still nothing.

I have this plant too its an Anemone virginiana - Thimbleweed. Its a wildflower which can become weedy

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.
