Unknown plant

Asked May 16, 2020, 11:25 AM EDT

Hello! I have an unknown plant. I thought that they were weeds and started pulling them but they have grown woody and much taller. Any idea? I had planted flowers from seeds here but I didn’t purchase anything that resembled these and they definitely popped up where I haven’t planted anything. Thanks

This is one of the smartweeds. Note the chevrons on the leaves: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/smartweed There are a few similar species, but they are all weeds. You'll want to pull it.

Copy! Thanks, I’ll go yank it out.
