This plant has suddenly grown in my veggie and herb garden bed. It has dark reddish stems and opposite, serrated leaves. One expert guessed Jerusalem artichoke but another said not because the stems spring from a central location rather than independently out of the ground. Thanks.

Hi. I am not sure what it is. It doesnt look like jerussalem artichoke that grow in my garden. Mine are all green stem, and its leaves are dull green just like common sunflower.

That's quite a large plant for 'suddenly'. I can't wait to see it bloom. Smiling
