This looks like it might be the white avens (Geum canadense). Have you seen these in flower in past years? They produce a fairly insignificant white flower and then reseed. The initial leaf shape is different from the mature leaf shape, with the new leaves sometimes having a whitish or dusty-gray cast. They are quite variable! Take a look at all the photos on this website and see if this matches what you have seen. https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=3605
Thank you so much! I've been wondering about that one for a couple of years now. It's pretty stable. I think I'll keep it!
I have one more for April, just popped up:
The leaves on the one I just posted so far look like mint leaves, but on steroids.
This might be something in the primrose family, but we would need to see it in flower to determine what it is. We would be happy to look at another photo later in the season when the plant is more developed.
Okay, thank you!
Are there any hairs along the stem and/or under the leaves? Does any part of the plant feel prickly? Or is it all smooth?
You may answer your own question by then, but we would like to see a photo of it's flower.
Okay, thanks! It looks like it's getting ready, so I'll attach a flower pic as soon as it blooms.
This looks like a type of mullein, most likely moth mullein (Verbascum blattaria).
