Do you know what this plant is? It's a naturalizer . . I've got it all over my yard.

I don't know what those pretty flowers are but I'll move this over to the Plant ID Forum where it will get more views and I'm sure someone will recognize it!

Thank you for letting me know this is Dame's Rocket, Dame's Violet, or Hesperis Matronalis.

It is definitely a self-naturalizer .. for a long time I was afraid to pull it because I thought it was something my mother had planted. I knew my mother had planted phlox and I thought that this might be phlox. I'm so grateful to now that it isn't. Now I know it's just a wildly successful plant.

Thank you Lyn Vosbury and Silversurfer. Thank You!
