I'm not sure what's in this pot of Black Mondo Grass. Any ideas? Is it a weed?

I don't know what it is and according to MG it is a weed. {Any plant that is not where it is suppose to be.}

I like it thought the red stem it's interesting.

jeri11, that's why I didn't pull it so fast. What is it? The leaves look nice and the stem is a bit red.

Regarding the grass-like, dark foliage, I'd say yep to black mondo a.k.a. Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'... http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/59262/index.html

Edit: Oops, duh, and slap my forehead!!! The companion of the black mondo is what you're after. Geez, I really should read more carefully before I post!

Hmm... as for its identity... not sure, but have some hunches. Will look into this. :-)

No, the leaves are not thick. Kinda grows like Hypericum and I kinda had a feel for Lonicera based on the buds.

growin,

Those are my two hunches! Hard to tell at such a small size if the foliage arrangement favors one over the other.

Not at all sure but,...Wild Black Cherry? (prunus serotina). I think they grow all over north America and your mystery plant looks very similar to the one in my garden that I keep cutting down! :) (Have to cut it back; It's a volunteer right up against the foundation..come up all leggy..tries to take over a very small space.)
