    My vote is to not pull it now. After it has bloomed, you can always deadhead so that it doesn’t spread. I am curious to see the blooms.

    Looks like a weed, but maybe not.

    I also think it is a weed, but still the flowers could be nice. We have a weed here that looks very similar. They blow in on little structures that somewhat resemble dandelion parachute seeds.

    I'd leave it and see what it is, can always deadhead it.

    The flowers are here, verdict IMG_7633.jpeg IMG_7634.jpeg says: Campanula. Nice big flowers and should have lots. A keeper and great for my street garden of natives to wild domestics (California poppy, foxgloves, native lupine and two varieties now of campanula)

    I like Campanulas. Yours turned out to be a beauty.
    I was surprised, I do not know this one.

    Will be happy to scatter the seeds from this lucky surprise. Have several places I’d like to see this beauty.

    Surprises like that beauty is good one. Usually most of my surprises are some type of noxious weed or banned plant.

    The one bell flower has self seeded in the yard and will make a great companion plant to this new and larger variety.
    Looking forward to seed scattering. Creating beds now along the front fence.
