    Can anyone ID this plant? I just moved into a new place, and am not sure if it's a weed or desirable plant. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    I guess it depends on where it is... :p

    I just moved into a new house - tons of green stuff growing everywhere. The backyard is under 3-4" of rotting leaves and its impossible to tell what was landscaping or grass or just dirt. So I'm cleaning it up and waiting to see what looks pretty and what looks ugly. To me, that defines a weed...

    I was talking to a guy a couple years ago about perrenials (my daughter's wanted a butterfly garden), and he was saying that a lot of popular perrenials now used to be considered weeds.
