I have a whole clump of these growing under my wisteria. Trying to decide if it's a keeper or a yanker. Big Grin

Gee, this one really looks familiar but I really haven't a clue as to identity. At first I thought it reminded me of Plantain but I don't think that's it.
Plantain (Plantago major)

Here's a couple more to compare it to:

Hopefully someone will come along and recognize it right away and be able to give an exact ID. I'm always curious as to what plants turn out to be so I'll be watching this thread.

Thanks Lin. Well, no spikes on it like plantain!

Looks similar to the immature form of Erechtites hieraciifolius (American Burnweed (Erechtites hieraciifolia))
My page here: http://www.robsplants.com/plan... has a photo of a young specimen. Leaf margins aren't quite the same, but that may be natural variation?

Great photos Rob! And, Catmint's plant does resemble the American Burnweed. Here are a few more photo's for comparison.

Catmint, if it turns out your plant is indeed American Burnweed (Erechtites hieraciifolia) you should add your great photo to the database.

Thanks Lin and Rob! I do agree the leaf margins on this one are a little different from the other one. Natural variation?
