A thick clump of these has grown up in one of my shade beds. They are about 12-18 inches tall. I thought at first they might be mulberry weed but the leaf texture is totally different. They are very close to iris and lilies I transplanted from my grandmother’s house after she passed away, and could possibly be seeds or plants that hitchhiked along, or honestly I could have planted them on purpose but now I have no idea what it is.

    I think we have a winner! I remember Ageratum blooming every year in Grandma’s garden. Thank you stone! Dale, I originally thought mint also, but the leaves are distinctly not aromatic.

    conoclinium coelestinum… Perennial Ageratum. I like them… You may have to thin… To keep the colony from spreading too much, but when it blooms in the late summer…. Spectacular!

    Looks like a mint of some kind.
