Are these purple coneflower seedlings?

janie58(5a)August 22, 2009

Last Fall 2008 I scattered a few packs of coneflower seeds in a corner of my front yard. In the spring of 2009, hundreds of little seedlings sprouted and when they were about 2-3 inches tall, I moved some to a sunny location.It's now mid August and some are about a foot tall but no flowers. I have read in some posts that coneflowers can take a year or two just to establish their roots. Are these coneflowers or have I been growing weeds? I have some black eyed susans in my yard and the leaves and stems look very similar to these. Thanks for any info.

No, that looks like one of the weedier eupatoriums.

I don't think so. At least, they don't look like mine, and I have a ton of them.

Looks an awful lot like Clearweed (Pilea pumila). Are the stems succulent?

Agree with Clearweed.
