Been working in an area I started on last year and spotted a BUNCH of these. Really don't know how I missed them before as there are quite a lot of them in this area...guess I should check other places as well. Might I want to move some elsewhere where they won't get mowed over??

It's a groundcherry, possibly Clammy Ground Cherry (Physalis heterophylla) , but there are many species of Physalis, which often aren't that easy to tell apart.

Good for you. Thumbs up I'm happy that you asked for the identification before pulling them up. I had a knee-jerk reaction and ripped mine out in a hurry. I asked for help with the ID after the damage had been done.

I viewed last night and had no clue. But glad you got an ID.

I'd say you should add your pics to the plant database, however I''ve forgotten how that works, I don't think I've added any. Blinking I know it was explained to me last year, beyond that not a clue.

Worth a try since the description lacks any photos.

Actually Wes I added them to the "general" entry for physalis since I can't say for SURE which one it is.
