I have 12 Dahlia in the ground from last year, can anyone tell me is this one of them, it is right on the spot where one is planted, I think it's a weed because non of the others are showing at all.

    I don’t think that’s a dahlia. 
    Is it alkanet?

    Looks like Phlomis to me as well.

    Wow I don't remember planting that, I did buy some plants from a nice gentleman near me, they were tagged with strips cut out of a Cornflakes box and soon the wind and rain put paid, I had a detached retina and was blind, now awaiting Cataract removal and so I do miss the odd thing, however I am going to make a garden planner, naming all that's in there, with photographs to back it up, I have grown some plants from last years seed pods, they are not large enough to put out yet, especially with this mornings weather. Thanks for the help.
