Is it a weed? Or a perennial?

Weed or plantHere’s a reminder as you weed and edit your gardens.

See how similar these two plants appear?  I almost dug out both of them until I became more aware!

The plant on the left and below IS a weed.  The upper plant is NOT.  The upright twigs from last year’s growth was the clue.  And nearby were two similar plants.  A group of three.  Whew!  So be careful and pay attention.  Because sometimes in the garden (and in life) what you think is a weed—is not.
