Several weeks ago I noticed this plant growing in one of the flower beds...could not tell then (or now) if it was a weed...but I just left it. Leon says anything that grows in the flower bed is a flower...some are tame and some are wild.
The plant is now just an inch or so under three feet tall. To keep it semi-straight I put a stake by it a couple or so weeks ago. This is the "questionable" plant. I don't recall ever seeing one growing out in the wild - but maybe I just over looked it. You can tell by these close up shots the flowers are small and dainty. The white at the edge of the leaves started appearing as the flowering began.
You can see the browning of some of my other plants in the back ground. The heat and lack of rain has not caused any damage to this mystery plant...so in that respect I think it could be a weed. I have done some computer research on weeds in Oklahoma but have not come up with anything.
So - is this a weed - or a garden plant whose seed was deposited by the wind or a bird?
Have a great week
