I have no clue but I think it's a keeper! Reminds me a little of a red leaf begonia.

I'm really starting to think it is a reseed of phlox. But I'll wait a while and see what happens.

Any chance you have any penstemon nearby? Could be a seedling. Confused
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

My first thought was also penstemon. I haven't a clue yet as to the identity of the one that this reminds me of though...tag reads (from broken section) -(looks like) "..s penstemon". Rolling on the floor laughing Not much help there! Whistling The "s" might even be an "e"...it's pretty smeary.
