This is growing in an area where I planted some boneset. I think it could be it, but wanted to get others' opinions!! (I've been wanting boneset forever--had trouble finding it, and now hoping I finally have it...)

The taller one looks like a zinnia maybe but the little plants below might be boneset. I hope you get them !! Smiling

It does look like two different plants growing there, the taller does look like Zinnia and the smaller plants below resemble Eupatorium (Bonaset). Check out some of these images for comparison:

thanks, all, and thanks for the comparison of zinnia and boneset! Thank You!
Not sure why I have so much trouble recognizing zinnias--probably because they keep popping up where I don't expect them! Hilarious!
well, I will let things continue to grow and keep my fingers crossed that something is definitely boneset!!
