Can anyone identify this plant?

Post  BrianDorry55 on 11/21/2013, 3:06 pm

I had this odd looking plant pop up in my garden...It came up right around the time my seeds popped up and definitely isn't anything I planted...I doesn't look like any weed that I can remember seeing either...any ideas?

Looks like a type of geranium. Pot it up and wait until it flowers.... I bet it will be pink.Wink

Then again maybe a mallow, how tall is that plant in the middle of the photo?

It is small...probably about 4 or 5 inches tall...those are three week old carrot seedlings next to it...Funny that I didn't even think geranium because I have those..but I've never seen them as seedlings before...I was very puzzled by the odd leaves. I has to be from the compost I got from a local rabbit/vegetable farm...

Maybe.... but I think the foliage is a bit rounder and flatter than the cranes foot. Too bad the mystery specimen is not in bloom. I'm still looking.

Thank you for the post and the ID!  These popped up in two of my beds and I never knew what they were.  I just keep pulling them.  I have never grown Geraniums so I am guessing they were gifted to me by birds or possibly purchased compost.  Another one of those small garden mysteries solved. Very Happy

The foliage also resembles blood root to a degree.

To me it looks like a young creeping buttercup or a very young strawberry plant .

It would not be uncommon for such seeds as the creeping buttercup to be found in rabbit muck

When you pull/pulled  it up didit /does it have a cluster of small white roots like a  couple of sets of really small baby octopus tentacles??

The buttercup also ran through my mind, but it's foliage is also more pointy.

I haven't pulled it up yet! :-) Wanted to wait to see what the folks on here said...the folks who I got my rabbit manure compost from grow a lot of veggies and fruits so I figured maybe it was something edible so I'd wait.

Definitely looks like this is the winner...It grow just like the ones in the picture with those widespread stems....if that's the case I'll probably just dispose of it because I've read that they can take over once they start dropping seeds...

Thank you for your ID!

Yes -- I would do that just out of curiosity...and to see if I guessed right at the identification. What a Face
