I'm stumped. I feel like I have searched the Internet to identify this plant that reseeds here every year. It's really pretty but fairly resilient as I have to thin them out every summer. It is shallowly rooted. Here are some pictures:

Be the first person to correctly identify this one and I'll transfer acorns to your account.

Thank you!

Schizanthus pinnatus ?

No it is not that either.

I'm in zone 5 and it does not overwinter here, it drops seed and spreads from there.

As much as it looks a bit similar to penstemon, I don't think that's it either. I've scoured images of all species of penstemon.

I'm stumped.

Thank you guys for helping out. Keep up the good work!

It reminded me of the flower form of jewel weed/ touchmenot but the leaves and color were different.

Danita! Thank you. Have been trying to identify this for years . My neighbor had called it the wild orchid. But I knew it wasn't an orchid.

I just sent you 10 acorns for your help with identification. I also sent an acorn to others of you who replied 😊

Happy to help & thank you for the acorns, Tracey! That is very sweet of you. Green Grin!

Don't forget that we have a great Plant ID forum where a lot of members like to hang out and identify mystery plants:
