I MANY packets of clearance seed packs around this area last year, some of them mixed "wildflowers." Who decided to show up? No idea if this lil' gal is a normal specimen for her kind of not. Hopefully my hand gives a sense of scale, it's about 6" tall, delicate, somewhat fuzzy, alternate foliage. TIA!

My first thought was Creeping Phlox but the leaves aren't right for that one. It looks so familiar!

TYVM for the help, Janine & Lin! That looks like a match. So glad I hadn't gotten around to weeding that area yet. I would have pulled it up! It's a tiny little thing but it's definitely welcome.
