    I am cleaning my garden and I am not sure that one of plant I see in the picture is flower or weed.
    The one in the bottom right.
    Can you help me?

    The top right is cornflower, left is sedum, those I know.

      Take a picture again a little more closer so can see if ridges on the leaves, etc. Also go online to your local area university and see is there is a "ID this plant" forum.  I was able to do this for Honolulu when I found a stinky Passion flower. - and believe me - I thought somebody dumped garbage near the flower! I didn't know the words to describe but when I got an answer I learned that the word was 'bracts'

      It's better to go local sources than the USDA Plant ID site.

      Here's a picture of what bracts look like the hairy sticky gnarly cowl around the fruit of a stinky passion:

    I don't know but it reminds me a bit of a minor weed here, Chenopodium album or Fat Hen, but it might be a flower, some things can look quite similar.  Where do you live?  Someone more local to you might be able to recognize if it's a weed or not.

      Thank you for your comment. I guess I will contact somebody local or just let it grow and see what would happened....(^^)``
