strong green plant ID'd by Oron Peri as a Conyza
« on: June 23, 2019, 01:35:32 PM »
I planted some Morning Glory seeds from the MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN SOCIETY seed exchange which delighted us for several days with dark blue flowers .
Before that a deep pink freesia surprised us in the same pot, no idea where that came from  was it in the soil?
Then this strong green plant took over the whole pot.
It does droop a bit if left unwatered for a few days but soon recovers.
The leaves look familiar but nothing comes to my mind.
Does anyone have any ideas?
