Echinacea Plants
Q.

Is this an Echinacea leaf?

Zone Williamsburg, VA | emigodwin added on May 8, 2019 | Answered

The leaf came from a plant that propagated itself in a vegetative manner in my garden, very close to where I planted an Echinacea plant last year. The plant never blossomed and seems to have survived the winter. Not only that, it has grown a number of daughter plants close-by. But the leaf appears too wide compared to other Echinacea leaves. Is it an Echinacea plant or some sort of weed mimicking the original plant? Thank you!

It does appear that it could be an Echinacea leaf. They get quite invasive in most areas, so you will likely find them in clusters!
