I have found these in most of my flower beds. I don't know if they are from a wildflower mix or a weed...i have the most next to my blanket flower. (1st picture)Looking closer they might be two different plants or my luck weeds...lol

Top pic maybe phlox.

Pic 2 is some kind of Persicaria. I would pull if in my yard. In all of the ID discussions I've seen, there are no volunteer plants with chevrons on their leaves that would be well behaved in a cultivated setting.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now.

Thank you I have been deciding weather to pull it. I'm glad I asked before they flowered. I'm guessing the wild flower seeds from the box were not a good idea. Most are probably some sore of weed.

If Phlox like the spot, they will spread via stolons.

Yes, the phlox will spread when they are happy. I've been working on getting rid of mine because they got way too happy here. They are hard to contain once they start spreading but if you like them spreading then leave them be. Smiling

Persicaria plants can just show up. If you still have the package, it might list the seeds included. It can be helpful to keep those packages so when seeds sprout, you can try to match them to the names on the package. If they don't match any, they are probably sprouts of other seeds, not from the package.

Thank you...i have another plant that I planted when I first moved in a few years ago that did the same thing this year. I'm not sure what it's call but I knew some plants did that. I didn't know the Phlox was one of them too. Thx again

And it figures that's the one package I didn't keep....oh well now I know for next time. Thank You!
