We have recently moved into our new home and I am new to gardening. I don't want to hastily remove anything without identifying it, which is becoming a real chore!

Can anyone help me identify this plant that is overtaking what once was a little rosebud planter?

It might help to know that this is in Eastern WA state.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @ktmeeks
The leaves look a lot like Creeping Bellflower (Campanula rapunculoides), which is very invasive. If that is what it is, try to dig out all the roots, and even though the flowers are quite pretty, don't let it set seed.
