*Blush* It was me that drooped that many seeds *Blush* The spot was clear and open and I had lots of seeds of various things so I thought I would free sow (is that a term) several of them. Now I have all this popping up. It's only popping up in areas where I spread seeds so I know it can't be a weed. I'm not going to chop anything in this area down this year just to see what I get from all those seeds Hilarious! I was just hoping someone might know what they could be Rolling on the floor laughing

Do you have a list of the seeds you sowed Stephanie? Or at least some you remember, that might help.

Salvia elegans is out, I took some photos of leaves (which I will add to the database soon), it was still in flower in a greenhouse until out recent frosty weather down to -15C! I haved a spare in the house 'just in case'.

I'm not sure about Monarda, most leaves I find are more spiky on the edges but as with most plants they vary a good deal.. some are narrower without the spiky edges.

Varying stages of Monarda fistulosa ..

Aha, there's a photo of Monarda fistulosa on the next link which does look much like yours! They look different to those in the link above ... but the first photo is very similar and about the same stage, the leaves are just a little different in colour.
