I agree. Pick a leaf and smell it. If it has a slightly minty, wonderful smell, like the So Cal back country, it is salvia.

I'm going to tag my query on the end of this one rather than create a new thread.
I found this volunteer in my front landscape bed. I'm certain I've seen this plant before, with flowers, in someone's yard, or maybe at a botanical garden. But it wasn't recently enough for me to even remember what color the flowers were/will be to help me look up possibilities. The leaves are a lighter green than many of the things that pop to mind for me. Anyone recognize it? Maybe a marigold type or relative?

Maybe a type of tansy?

Maybe! I initially rejected that thought, but, flipping through the web, it seems that the plant I'd learned as tansy from my mom's herb garden wasn't the 'common' tansy, but was more likely the Lake Huron tansy.

The volunteer looks pretty similar to common tansy leaves I'm seeing online. If that's what it is, it's amusing I was planning on growing it this year. I may try to snag those volunteers and pot them up for putting next to the squash instead of using my just-sprouted seedlings. (I plan to keep them deadheaded so I don't aerially spam other gardeners with wind-sent volunteers.)

Sweet Cicely is my first guess...or Poison Hemlock...Cow Parsnip -- they look very much alike. If you're not sure which it is, and if you didn't plant it you may want to get rid of it -- but please read about removal/disposal of hemlock beforehand!

Thank you Beetles. thanks Why create a new thread about the same topic, is my motto. I occasionally merge threads about the same topics.

The smell of a small, crushed piece of leaf was like a mild wormwood.
