This is sprouting up all over in my northern Illinois garden. I brought in some plants from a friends garden last year...I don't think I planted this, the seeds might have hitched a ride since it is in a lot of the same places I planted things last year. When it first came up the leaves had a purplish cast now they have small purple flowers.
