coneflower(?) in a clump of daisies

Chicago, IL(Zone 5b)

I noticed on my rounds this morning that what appears to be a coneflower (or some such) seems to be sprouting up in the middle of a clump of what I believe are daisies (I transplanted them from my dad's garden last summer). Should I try to separate them and put the coneflower somewhere else or leave it be and see what happens?

I think I would leave it.... just see what it looks like when they are both blooming.

I'm not so sure it's a coneflower. The cupped stem leads me to beleive it is plantain (plantago spp). I'd leave it a few weeks to be sure, and eliminate before it flowers if it is a weed.

Ok, thanks for the tip. I'll keep an eye on it . . .
