Notes:

I grow miniature gardens and when I saw this in my yard I potted it and it has flourished. But I don’t know what it is.The first image shows the flowers, less than a half inch long. The entire plant is about three inches tall. The second image shows the leaves and stem. I have not seen another one in the yard so it does not appear to be a prolific weed. The flowers last at least a week.

    I think Mazus pumilus is a good identification. It does not have square stems like a mint. The leaves of Mazus pumilus are exactly like the ones in my plant; my flower are less purple but very close. Thanks for the help.

    Is the stem square like a mint, if so it might be a skullcap. In the mint family.

    It might be pulmonaria. They have spotted leaves and they bloom in the spring. The ones I used to grow had blue and pink flowers on the same plant.
