okay, I promise I'm almost done. *Blush* The leaves on this one look different-- not only serrated but sort of 'scooped'? Anyone know what it might be?

Hmm, this one looks more like American Burnweed (Erechtites hieraciifolius) than the other one I just answered about Green Grin!

The fluff it produces is kinda cool, but I don't think I should let this one grow any longer. Officially on my 'yank' list. Glare

As easy as these guys pull, I like them fine as nutrient accumulators....

Recently read that we can eat them, apparently they even have good flavor!
