Looks like flat leave parsley that has bolted (started making a flower). Take a bite. Does it taste like parsley? Just kidding. Crush some of the leaves in your hand and see what it smells like.

Tried that, doesn't smell like parsley. I had a couple of smaller ones that looked the same that grew a little stickery ball looking thing. Not sure if this is the same thing as they are a lot bigger and have no sign of flower type things.

As you can see by the pics, some seem to grow flatter and some taller.

Plant or Weed?


It's only a weed if you don't want it. A weed is simply a plant in the wrong place. Very nice fescue grass is a weed when it is growing up through your gravel driveway!

If you like it--keep it! If you don't like it--pull it up! There is a "weed" in my Kansas called ground ivy or "creeping Charlie." I didn't know what it was when I decided to cultivate it, but I've created a very nice bed of it by removing all other "weeds." It is a very well-tended, monocultured bed of "weeds" that blooms reliably every year and requires no fertilization or watering--just a little trimming to keep it in check.

Don't worry what the neighbors may think. Just because it's a volunteer doesn't mean it's a weed. Turns out some volunteer vines on my fence are beautiful morning glories!

This looks a lot like California Poppy which should be coming up about now and blooming in the next month or so. Of course if you are not in CA, I don't know if it grows elsewhere.
