I have a bird feeder nearby so I’m thinking it could be from the seed. It isn’t very big, perhaps 12 square inches and it’s growing in a mostly shady spot. Anyone know what it is?
Thanks 😊

    Thanks @Hostafan1! I’m quite pleased now. I’ve seen it growing elsewhere and quite fancied it 🙂

    once you have it, it'll be with you forever. It seeds about freely

    Yes, I’ve just read that online @Hostafan1. It can stay for now and we’ll see how it goes. Perhaps it won’t be so prolific in a shady spot?

    It's not too hard to pull out if you get it the first year. I have all three colours and let them seed about the place.

    Thanks for the info @B3! It has come up in a sparsely planted area so I don’t think I’ll mind if it spreads a bit.
