This is growing in one of my native patches and I am not sure what it is. The leaves are rough and do not have a smell. It resembles the Joe Pyes I have elsewhere, but the leaves are not as wide.

I looked through the list of what is in the seed mix, but there were no Eutrochiums. But they also note the mix can change based on availability. I do not have the original packaging and just look at the list on their site currently.

If you need other photos, I can go back out when its not as dark. We just had some rains.
Thank you so much for your help.

Thank you, I don't know why I didn't think of that. And that one is listed in the mix.
