I am determined to learn how to identify seedlings so that I don’t get my hopes up over something that turns out to be a weed. We’ve had some great plants arrive on the wind or from birds, but also a lot of weeds. This will be my official weed identification page for future reference.
If anyone here knows… please comment.
#1 - I had zinnia’s in this box last year but these don’t look #2 No clue what these might be. Came on the wind I think.
like zinnias. I suspect this could be fleabane….
Tall Yellow Coneflower Mexican Hat Coneflower Probably Celosia Spicata Pretty sure this is Gallardia
Salvia Euphorbia (snow on the mountain, self seeded) Ailanthus tree from seed (3 leaves)
These are all morning glory seeds that sow themselves. I love the way their leaves unfold.
Love Lies Bleeding (Amaranth that grows long red tendrils) Shoo Fly Mystery plant (tobacco?)
Elderberry in April, and now with buds coming soon. Tobacco or Elecampane? Petunia (left) and Tobacco (right)
These are Convolvus Ensign or dwarf morning glory. In late April I soaked the seeds and they did not come up. These are mid-May.
Datura --came on the wind Virginia Cup flower Feverfew (re-seeded itself) Groundcover – Henbit blew in on wind
seeds planted in March Yarrow Mullein Sedum
Tansy Elderberry Mint Gingko (from seed)
There is nothing more hopeful that buds coming out of a twig or branch.
