Weed or wildflower?

Asked August 24, 2015, 9:51 AM EDT

I have a wildflower garden and I wonder what the plant in the foreground is: the one that has little white spots on its leaves and the clusters of tiny flowers.

This is ragweed, getting ready to bloom and spread its highly allergenic pollen. We'd recommend you pull it immediately.http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/ragweed
