Mystery Weed

« Back to Name that Plant

Date Photo Taken: August 4, 2011

Notes:

This plant is cropping up all over my yard. I don’t have a clue what it is but since the foliage is pretty, I don’t want to remove it unless you tell me it is a nasty beast to have around (I have pets). The plant in the photo is about 18 inches high; others in my yard are about 2 feet high and still growing.

Thanks so much!

    Thanks Walter! The Missouri link was most helpful. The leaf structure just seemed too perfect on this specimen!
