Last year I noticed 2 or 3 of these plants popping up in my garden. Since they didn't look like any weed that I know I left them to their own device thinking they could be some form of ornamental flower that had reseeded.
They didn't flower last year but I thought they might be bi-annuals because of their rosette of leaves.
This year in spring I've noticed that there are about 8-9 of them all over the garden. We're still in spring here (it's been a late, cold and wet spring) in zone 4b/5a in Canada. Their proliferation has me worried.
They seem to be evergreen or very fast growers because they were among the first plants to be seen after the snow melted. As you can see in the second picture, there are some bulbs showing and some pansies that somehow survived the winter but otherwise everything else is still in dormancy.
Anyone know what they might be?
