This showed up this spring and I've been waiting to see if it would flower so I might know what it is. A stem shot up but no flowers that I could see, looks more like seed pods. Any ideas what this is?

It's a really slow growing plant. Here's what it looks like now.

Aah, it looks like something I found growing in a container a few years ago ... someone on here ID'd it for me but I can't remember what it was called. I'll go look through my pictures and come back and compare if I can find it.

Well, I'm not any help. My plant was identified as Bitter Dock (Rumex obtusifolius) which doesn't even look like other photos in the database.

Thanks for your effort, Lin! No, your's sure doesn't look anything like the others. I guess with that id you didn't keep the plant.

Nope, I didn't keep it ... thought it was a weed. Big Grin and, I guess leaves can be variable: http://www.bing.com/images/sea...

It's certainly not Rumex, the young stem similar to the salvia, leaves hairy,
Lamiaceae ...Ajuga ?

It does look like a salvia, like a lyre leaf without the lyre, Confused

It looks like Salvia lyrata. The leaves can be variable even on the same plant. If you keep the plant around, it will likely produce some lyre-shaped leaves as it gets older. They almost always go into cleistogamous mode when the temperatures warm. That is why you saw bud-set and seed-set but no regular flowering in-between times.

nodding Yep, Salvia lyrata grows wild here. Sheesh! I kept thinking it looked kinda familiar with those purple veins. I guess I've never seen it with the round leaves.


Thank you for all your help in solving my 'mystery plant'. Thumbs up
