I seem to find a new weed in the garden almost every year. I saw this one for the first time a year ago. I've been hand digging it. The roots go deep and if I don't get all of them, it keeps coming back. I'm hoping someone can tell me what it is. I haven't tried Roundup or any other sprays. I need to get rid of it before I start planting. It's almost too pretty to be a weed. LOL
I'm not sure it's something that's going to bloom. At least it didn't last year. It's all over my garden and grows in clumps with up to five stems. I dug out a big bucketful last week and again this morning. There is still more. The leaf pattern looks a little like this yellow lady slipper. But I know it isn't that. These new weeds might come in with potting soil, top soil or mulch.
The golden rule: Do to others only that which you would have done to you.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now. (-Unknown)

Thanks Tiffany, Tara and Phillip for the replies! It does look a little like your photo but I guess I'll have to let some grow in a spot away from the garden and wait to see what it becomes when it's mature.
Just a crazy thought but this "weed" looks a little like the hosta the next door neighbor grew for years. One bed was within 20' of the edge of my garden. The husband died 3-4 years ago and the wife moved to assisted living two years ago. The house has been vacant since and the deer eventually ate all the hosta. I've heard that hosta can spread seeds quite a ways. Possibly? Anyway, just a thought.
