This is most likely from some wildflower seed I sowed but for the life of me I can't place it. It seems so familiar.

I think not. The foliage on Mexican hat is fine, almost ferny looking.

Yes, Limonium sinuatum is a common ingredient of wildflower mixes. I used to grow a lot of it for dried flower arrangements.

It's not Limonium although I would be thrilled if it were.

I'm pretty convinced Leslie is right at least to the degree that it's in the Diplotaxis genus.
The red stems should be a clue. I can't speak german but look at the last photo left side #4:
http://www.blumeninschwaben.de/Zweikeimblaettrige/Kreuzbluet...

Maybe Diplotaxis muralis

And I think this one is written in Russian? @Zuzu

It's close enough to Russian that I can make some sense of it, yes. Big Grin

Does it say anything about red stems?



I just went out and crushed a leaf & there is no mustard type odor at all.

I see nothing about red stems. It does say something about an unpleasant odor.

The translation won't come through on the link. I will have to go back to the page & do a Google translate myself. Thanks Janet!

Will have to check out the knapweed.

Have to run! Dinner calls.

I have to recant on it being Diplotaxis due to the missing odor of mustard greens or the like.

Thank you Janet. It's not any of those. The leaves just aren't right and the red stems are missing.

I might just have to wait for it to bloom or at least put up bloom stalks. And here I thought this one was going to be a piece of cake. Whistling

Ann, could it possibly be Oriental Poppy? Are the leaves hairy at all? It also looks like not all of them have the red stems down at the bottom, or do they just not show up?

They do self-sow generously, and for years I was thinning them out, in my daughter's garden in Utah. Not all have pointy, ferny leaves either, some are rounded at the ends like your plant. You could dig one up and see if it has fleshy, white rhizomes under there . . ?

They are hairy Elaine, both upper side of leaves as well as underside and the stems too. The very, very young ones do not have the red yet but it seems it's not long before they get the red. In my photos of the younger ones, the red just isn't showing.

One of the seeds in a mix was Papaver rhoeas. I think this could be a real possibility. This is why I really wish people would add close ups of leaves & stems in the database. It can be so helpful in IDing plants. It's not always just about the blooms. Sighing! I trust photos on our website better than the general internet.
I will see about digging one up. There are plenty out there.
