This plant volunteered. 10-12 inches tall. Looks sort of attractive but suspect it is a weed. Did a lot better than the petunias.

    I have seen a wild plant here in Ohio that looks similar to your above picture (another similar one has blue or purple flowers. On a walk a many years ago our wildflower tour guide identified it as White Vervain or Verbena urticifolia (because of the nettle like leaves) I hesitate to second guess Stone since by his many posts he is very good and loves plants.

    Looks like a porterweed (Stachytarpheta sp.), the white flowered form is a rare item…
