Answer:

Aster indicus
We relocated plants and identified them as Indian aster, Aster indicus = Kalimeris indica native to East Asia, not known from New England up until now. Most (if not all) seed appear underdeveloped, so this could be a hybrid of that species with another aster. References: [1], [2].

My wife Toni took a couple of pix that show the transition between foliage types a little better, if you're interested.

Is this Lamium maculatum? Found it by a path in the woods.

Answer:

Lamium argentatum
A garden escapee of uncertain origin and taxonomic status; potentially invasive in Britain; becoming rather widespread in eastern Massachusetts. We saw a true Lamium maculatum (http://salicicola.com/photos/gallery/view/1462/15459/) but only once and only as planted.

Answer:

Euphorbia lathyris
Dear Liz, please respond if you ever discover this message. We would love to find out if the plant has been persisting in your yard and also give you a proper credit, as we have posted your photos in the gallery. This is the only evidence of this plant growing on its own in Plymouth Co.

Euphorbia lathyris
Caper spurge. This question was posted in June 2012 and remained unanswered until 2018. This would be a new county record for Plymouth Co. So far this exotic plant has been found in Suffolk, on the Cape and Nantucket. The plant is a summer annual.
