Wondering if anyone can help identify this. When it only had 2/3 leaves it looked like a Dandelion. Over the winter it has grown considerably but I have no idea what it could be.

Too leafy in all probability but it could be a species of hawkweed. Maybe?

That would probably be my luck Vinny. It's now  about 6 inches tall and I have my fingers crossed it's going to be something worth having.

It couldnít be an oenothera, could it? The dense leaves near the top remind me of this, but Iím not so sure about the leaf shape.

Hawkweeds are mostly nice, though seldom gardenworthy, if only because they are verging on invasive.

Oenthera looks a good bet. just wait for flowers   :)
