Can anyone help ID this pair?

Post  Windsor.Parker on 2/22/2012, 8:09 pm

Was out prepping a 2nd year seed bed when I uncovered these guys.
I don't remember seeing them last year, but that was our first time using the ground for veggies. The only plants we grew near were peas, tomatoes, cucumbers and mustards. Maybe they came with a flowering vine (c. 1ft away from each) that was a gift? Maybe pics will be posted later.

here's its sibling.

It looks familure but I cannot put my finger on it. Are you going to take it out of the garden and pot it up. Maybe it looks a little like a mallow... or not, LOL. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Looks like a squash style leaf, don't have an idea what a mallow is?

Hi camprn,
I'll leave them in the ground for a few more days until I need to use the squares. Then I'll transplant them both.
littlejo,
I also thought it could be a squash, but ???

Looks a lot like the hollyhock plants in my son's yard. I'm betting on a flower of some kind.

fuzzy?

Post  curio on 2/23/2012, 10:10 am

Are the stems of this plant fuzzy? If so, it's probably a weed that grows in this area. I haven't been able to find the name off it, but it looks sort of like a spindly fuzzy heuchera when grown. I believe it might have a flower stalk later in the year with non-descript pink and green flowers.

I know What This is!

Post  TNplants1 on 5/3/2012, 5:36 pm

We have these little devils everywhere our plants grow and i know these quiet well ! It's a weed called mugwort, hogwort and many other names. Its not terribly invasive but does love to grow near vegetables. We have a nursery and this pesty little weed gets in our perennial plant beds all the time. Just drives us crazy. We use a garden how to get them up by their roots. You really cant use a herbicide to kill because it will affect the organics we grow and herbaceous plants, so our labor to get shed of these little boogers is by hand. Any helpful information on any other less harmful chemicals would be most appreciated.Tammy

Vinegar spray might do it.
