Hi! Need help Identifying these plants....I'm not sure if they are weeds and need to be pulled, or if they are wildflowers. These are in a bed where i plant wildflowers every year.
Any help is appreciated! Smiling This is in Cleveland, OH

Welcome! Welcome!

I can't say for sure but look like Echinacea or Rudbeckias to me. Are the leaves hairy at all?

I can't say for sure either but I'd keep them to see if perhaps you get blooms in the near future; flowers would certainly give a more exact ID. The plant in the second photo reminds me of Black Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia)

Thank you both so much for the help! :)
No, the leaves are not hairy at all.

It would make sense if they are Black Eyed Susans or Echinacea, as I have had both of those plants in the general area.
I'm just not experienced enough to identify them early.
