I think this piggy backed in with a seed trade several years ago and it's been happily reseeding in my nursery pots.
TIA.....

Could it be a baby Joe Pye?

Don't think it could be Joe Pye, though I've not grown Joe Pye and there may be some that would look like this. Leaves are not opposing, stem and leaves are very slightly sticky, velvety to the touch, gray-green and have a pungent scent.

AHA! That certainly looks like it! I've never heard of it, certainly never seen it before and it's found its way to California. Texas...hmmm, I wonder if it could have sneaked in with some seeds from LazLo a couple of years ago. I think that's the only person from Texas I got seeds from. Thank you very much. I'll have to go back and take another look at the info for it. I see that it likes moisture and it's been happy in all of my nursery pots, will have to see if there are any appropriate spots for it in the garden.

lol...I was just going to post that! That it's native to Calif also. So one way or another it's ended up here. I do like the plant but wanted to make sure of what I was turning loose on the property since it seeds so freely. There are no moist areas here, most of my stuff is drought tolerant, so it may have to content itself with living in the nursery. It's been happy to do so thus far. There's one in the ground that was planted with another plant that went into the ground. I'll see how it handles that situation....
