Are these plants or weeds? I had landscaping done last summer and these plants came in quickly and now I'm not sure if I should pull them or keep them!

Are they about to bloom? The flowers could help you decide.

I've been waiting to see if they bloom and so far nothing.

The top one looks like lobelia.
Second one resembles echium...
We'll know more when the blooms open.
Certainly can't hurt to wait for that...

BTW, even weeds are plants. Smiling

And likewise, if you don't want them or can't get rid of them, plants can be weeds. Thumbs up All weeds are plants, but not all plants are weeds. What came first, the chicken or the egg? Whistling

That said, these both look like the same thing to me, whatever they are. Looks like you will see blooms soon, so that will help identification.
