The leaves are anyway. But I never planted anything there although we've had to dump pond water in this area a few times.

Thanks, that pointed me in the right direction--it's Geum canadense--another weed.

This? I think mine is like yours? It is a WEED?! I have still been watering this, ever hopeful... well it is a pretty weed.

Yeah... I was going to leave those pretty leaves but I knew I'd never planted anything remotely like it in that spot and it was sort of innocently lounging behind my ligularia. I figured check it out. This is it: http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/savanna/plants/white_ave...

Geum canadense is not a weed, it is a lovely native wildflower very much appreciated by many. Smiling

You're right, Josephine. I'm just sore that it's growing where I want my ligularias.

well I am going to leave it and see what it does for now. It is in full shade though so not sure if it will like that.

It does tolerate shade very well, it usually grows in the woods around here.
