leaf03 Too Many Plants

Five images is my limit, so I will post more after this.

#1. For some reason, I suspect this is nasty, but it doesn't look familiar.
#2 and #3 Coming up in the middle of the yard. I first saw them last fall.
#4 and #5 Quite a few natives were planted in this patch, but the man I bought them from rambled off their names and I only could catch a few. This was not one of them. It seems to be coming up nicely spreading a bit.

Here are the rest.
#6. Suspect another nasty as there is a lot all over. I thought millet from the bird feed, but the pictures I looked at, it almost looked like grass with thin leaves. It is not prickly like that alien lettuce.

#7. This is a native gotten from the same fellow last year. I learned this spring, it is waay too close to the Wild Bergamot, so I already moved it. I hope it is a tough plant. Looking at a page of native seedlings, it resembles Royal Catchfly, but maybe I am just hopeful.

Thank you for any and all help toward identifying these. Some I have given time with looking through the field guides, others I wasn't sure where to begin, so honestly didn't try.

Oh, here is a link someone gave me... It might be helpful to others, but I do not know where might be a good place to post this.

Many of these are in basal form. Once they break out of that phase, they put on a more distinguishing form, which is a lot easier to figure out.

#1 looks like a brassica?
#2/3 reminds me of a rubekia
#6 looks like a dandelion?
#7 Kinda looks like a Virginia Bluebell but not really

I think the 1st 1 looks a lot like lesser celandine, buttercups.
If so I have tons of this one and it is highly invasive to woodlands.
When you pull it out the tiny bulbils spread widely no mater how carefully you dig it up.

Some possibilities for #5 at this point:

Maybe one of the toothworts (Cardamine spp.)
Cardamine**** concatenata: UW-Stevens Point Freckmann Herbarium: Plant Details Page

Or less desirable, possibly the common daisy (Leucanthemum spp.)

I LOVE what's-its!
My best guesses would be...........

#1 looks more like a wild mustard than the lesser celandine as the following leaves are situated real close to it's main leaf. I'd agree it is of the brasicas. http://blogs.poughkeepsiejournal.com...f-wild-greens/

#2 and #3 I thought rudbeckia as well but I'm going to go with creeping bellflower because of the red tones in it. The City of Calgary - Creeping bellflower

#4 and #5 I'd swing more towards one of the artemisias Artemisia Silver King plants for sale $3.50/plant instead of the toothworts because of its blue coloration and its spreading habit. Definitely not a daisy.

#6 I'd say a chickory. https://www.google.com/search?q=chic...ed=0CAYQ_AUoAQ

#7 I don't think it's a bluebell and it Looks more sturdy than a royal catchfly-silene.https://www.prairiemoon.com/seeds/wi...-catchfly.html
Possibly a rose campion but I'm not feeling any of the softness they have.

Hmmmm A balloon campion?

#1 looks like Winter Cress to me, Barbarea vulgaris.

Hmmm...I think #2 and #3 look like Rudbeckia. Wondering if #4/5 might be Prairie Sage (Artemisia). I have some that was in a seed mix from Prairie Moon and it looks similar to this in early spring. Gets quite tall, but it's not unruly. I just thin it out now and then.

Might #7 be one of the Beard-tongues? I seem to recall mine looking like this when I first purchased them as potted plants from Prairie Moon.

I'm sure most of these have grown to the point where you have a better idea by now. I'd be interested to know what you've come up with!
