This plant is all over the Portland sidewalks but I can’t find any information on what it is. No one I know can figure it out either. It has no obvious flowers (yet?) and no discernible aroma. It starts out with basal leaves and then sends up a round purplish stem with leaves branching off of it. It grows to about 24” high. It seems to like direct sunlight and rocky, sandy soil.
Do you have any clues on what it may be? Curious minds want to know!
