Help! This is growing under a few of my rose bushes and other bushes. I am not sure if the previous owner planted these or if they are new weeds. Does anyone know? I would like to pull them but if they are flowers, I will leave them. Any help is appreciated.

    Oh, my neck! I can’t tell from the picture but it does look a little weedy. My favorite definition of a weed is, any plant growing out of place. Merriam Webster says it this way: a plant that is not valued where it is growing and is usually of vigorous growth; especially : one that tends to overgrow or choke out more desirable plants (2) : a weedy growth of plants

    it’s an invasive weed.
