Seedling Identification

Post  lbmcse on 7/11/2013, 7:36 am

Hi all!  I hope I'm posting this in the right forum.  I've begun to germinate some flower seedlings to place around the house.  I made a rookie mistake and neglected to put a tag on these. 

If the respondents insist that I list the possible 6 or so seeds that could have been used, I will.  Not trying to be obtuse, but the interweb is chock full of guesses, and it would instill more confidence in me if someone said off the bat, "sure, those are so and so. . ." .


 
Anyways, here are the photos.  They're approximately 8 days old.  Enjoy.  And thank you!!

Some type of marigold I think.

I agree with Camprn - looks like a marigold.

Thank you!

Thanks for the responses.  I had six seed types, and I was certain I didn't plant marigolds.  Seems I did after all.  Smile  My brain ain't what it used to be. 
 
I've planted passionflower (passiflora incarnata), cornflower, sweet pea, Echinacea, nasturtium and marigold.  I did extensive google searches on seedling images for the above, but didn't for marigold as I was pretty certain I didn't plant them.  Everything else was labeled.  After I read the two quick responses, I did a marigold search (images for seedlings) and sure enough, it's the only one with a 5 lobed leaf.  I think you're right. 

Thanks again.
