Curious. The main rosette reminds me of perennial lobelias, but the runners don't.

Is this the part you are calling the rosette?
Thumb of 2015-06-29/greene/300119

If so, to my old eyes it looks like this part is a different plant than the one producing the runners. Thank You!

It is the part I am calling the rosette , and it is all the same plant , That is why I am asking , 40 years of gardening , have seen a few plants that do that , none come to mind, I am at a loss to ideas of where to look ,
Lobelelia , Campanula , come close .
Hoping for a bloom Confused Thank You!

Were the Feverfew seeds from a commercial source? or from a trade with another gardener? Hopefully if from another gardener, we can search their plant list for some clues.

If it's from the potting mix... Confused Blinking Shrug!

Then we are sunk. Hilarious! And if the pot/container was outside we could even toss in a gift from the birds.
Guess we all wait for a bloom?

green It was inside a terrarium to start with , The more I look at it (the plant) The more I think Cudweed ,
Only some of the leaves are dark green and waxy , the others exactly as it looks in the ID photo ,,
Unless it blooms ,I guess in two months or so , I dig one up and bring it in this winter , I suppose it could be some kind of Aster with the clumping form of it , ? Only I am lost with this one ... There is even the the possibility of some kind of Ajuga , I think someone mentioned that though ?

Probably not Ajuga genevensis since the leaves look nothing like your plant.

While we wait for blooms, let's review...Here is the assignment...Focus on each part of the photo. Place a name on each plant that you can identify.
Those of us following the thread have only your photos to guide us; you are fortunate that you have the actual plants in front of you. Thumbs up

Here is your original photo.
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/0a05ef

Here are some cropped portions that need a name.

1- Upper right, may be a Maple or Sweetgum; give this a name:
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/332c63

2- Lower right of photo - give this a name:
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/48d63b

3-Parsley-looking leaves - give this a name:
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/18f6fd

4-Please only look at the two large leaves on the left and right; ignore the runner for now. To me the two large leaves appear to be a Violet; what do you think? - give the two leaves a name:
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/b3836f

Here is where we need to focus...
5-Lower left of photo:
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/ee7221
and
6-Lower middle of photo (I think the runners come from this plant):
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/230c60

Do #5 and #6 look anything like #7?

7- The center of the NOID 'problem' (I think this plant has no runners):
Thumb of 2015-07-02/greene/9b0f72

In this photo caption the 'same plant of course' that gets my attention.
The photo shows leaves and runners but it does not show the connection back to the 'mother' plant. I want to jump into the computer screen and get a closer look. Hilarious!

Still not convinced that your NOID plant is only one plant. I believe there are actually two plants unaccounted for... look at my cropped images #5 and #6 and compare them to #7. I think the runners are coming from #5 and #6 as the leaves seem to match.

Whenever you decide to dig up the plants itwould be great to see some new images of each individual plant. I don't mind being wrong, but I just hate when things that are unsolved. How will I ever sleep tonight? Sad

1 silver maple pulled as weed
2 Dead Nettle , gets into everything I set out , pulled also as weed
3 Feverfew . grew from old seeds ,, same as where unidentified came from


The difference of 5, 6 , & 7 is there , I agree
I cannot put an exact on the one or ones I want or am trying to Identify , Thank You! Confused
A lot of leaf difference there I agree Thank You!

So I guess we wait for a bloom? I would hate for you to uproot the plant (or 2 plants?) without knowing if it is a valuable addition to your garden.
Guess I'll have some tea and chill a while. Thumbs up

The basal/rosette foliage looks a bit like lewisia. Are the leaves fairly thick?

Yes, foraygardengirl) the leaves do have a thicker appearance , That is one reason I let it grow , leaves thicker than usual weed type plants , not as heavy as usual cacti or succulents

I have not seen them on my lewisia, but mine were planted in between rocks so they might not have been able to do that. I agree with previous posts that the runners are likely a different plant. In the end, this is just a guess/possibility anyway.
