These babys are numerous in several parts of my flower beds, VERY easy to pull, so not being much of a problem, but I was just wondering what they are. I see them every year. Upstate SC. Thanks for any help
They look like spruce seedlings to me.
Yes, most likely pine unless something else is in the vicinity.
I'm going to say pine, as well....especially considering your location. Certainly not coreopsis.
I expect that you have pines very nearby.
if you have that many.. momma has got to be close...
and if you can find a cone.. there are peeps in the conifer forum.. who can ID pine by cone.. perhaps here too ...
ps: why dont you let one grow for a year or two.. and find out ...
I do have several pines, dont need more, but also have several threadleaf coreopsis....if it were coreopsis, i would plant the babies elsewhere. Thanks for your input!
