Came across a couple of interest to me.
This tiny one showed up as I was cleaning one of my paths. I almost kill it. It is really tiny - I doubt if it will grow - I have seen these little ones before and they die off.

This one is nothing to look at but where I found it was odd. I was cleaning "junk" out of my hardy orchid bed which doesn't have any hosta in it. This plant was buried under the orchid leaves and I never would have seen it except that I was digging out phlox, violets and poke weed in that bed so I was close to the ground - also finally got the bulb of a greenbriar that's been in there since it came in with a mountain laurel I planted many years ago (long before I was into hosta). I moved the little weedling to the garden in the middle of my lawn - it probably came from there.

I was working in my rectifolia area today. I was trying to redirect some of the "runners" and keep them in the same area. While I was at it I also had to more some weedlings that were in the way. Usually these things are plain green but one had a lot of color at the base of the petiole.

A couple more:
This one has been around for a few years - don't think I have seen it flower. Very small leaves for a weedling - usually these things are bigger.

I just noticed this one with an early scape. It might have a lighter edge to it.

I posted this one earlier in the season and here it is mid-June.

And here it is yesterday when I noticed a scape coming up with streaking vestigial leaves.

With luck and cooler temps I might be able to cross it with Red Cloud which has a similar sized scape.

A couple of my weedlings shooting-up tall scapes. The one on the left is my streaker.
That's Lacy Belle in back also putting up scapes.
