Two of these low-growing plants have shown up in sedum planted this year. They have not bloomed, which would have helped with ID. They are growing in a dry plot in a Mid-Atlantic garden. They have a whorl of these fuzzy blotchy purple and green leaves: they are a couple of inches high and about six inches across. They seem to be relatively slow-growing. Sedum was planted in June. I would like to know what they are and are they something that I should remove. Leaves are at least interesting.

    Looks like Spotted Hawkweed. It is known as the species Hieracium maculatum, but according to an internet source it is Hieracium glaucinum instead. So what ever species or subspecies it is under, your ‘volunteers’ are pretty.
