Flower? Weed? Or flowering weed?

July 31, 2008

Still trying to figure this thing out. It looked like a weed growing in my garden early this summer. But because it wasn’t spreading, just growing upwards, I left it alone. Thought I’d see what happened. Well it started to flower. The first one was so big it was weighing the whole plant down so I cut it off. There were 2 others on it getting ready to open anyway. Well those 2 are open and it looks like there are 3 more. The flowers are weighing down the plant and the stems are starting to twist and turn. The blooms seem to turn towards the sun like a sun flower. But I’m still not sure what it is or how it got there.

    Is it a huge dahlia?

    I was thinking that too, just not sure.

    This appears to be a zinnia. They are annuals but easily reseed.
