I'm totally stumped by this pear shaped leaf plant that has come up near my zinnias and rudbeckias. Can you identify it? It's about 3' tall now.

Hi Gayle, Welcome! to NGA

My guess is that its in the Legume family. Could you go back to your personal information and fill in the location information? That will make it easier to narrow down.

Thank You!

Java-bean (Senna obtusifolia) or something related.

I agree It's a host plant for Sulpher Butterflies.

I agree it looks senna related. Three varieties grow in my yard and all were volunteers.
