Hi

I let a volunteer plan grow in my gardensince I was curious what it was but I still can't I identify it.

The first picture is the base of the plant followed by the leaves of the rest of the plant and the flower.the plant is about 2 1/2 feet tall.

Thanks,
Kris

Thanks for the replies. I suspect you are all right that it is garlic mustard after comparing images on googles amd reading more on it.

It's to bad it is such an invasive plant because it has nice flowers while everything else is still growing leaves.

In the end I dug it out of the garden.

Thanks again,
Kris
