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?

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.

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.
