I live in the south west VA and I cant seem to identify this plant enter image description here


It looks like Abutilon theophrasti, commonly called velvet leaf.

  • Is it edible can the flower be eaten. – Ben Madison Sep 23 '19 at 1:41
  • Definitely velvet leaf. Deadhead immediately - it reseeds viciously and your neighbors will NOT be pleased with you. – Jurp Sep 23 '19 at 2:49
  • Welcome! You could greatly improve the post by adding a few “why’s” - what characterizes the plant, how does the reader recognize it and what distinguishes it from similar other plants? How to Answer should also give you a few pointers and as for all new users, the tour and help center are good ways to learn more about how the site works. – Stephie Sep 23 '19 at 5:48
