Can anyone id these? They are growing in a wet-ish area in N. VA mtns. They are small plants with opposite leaf arrangement, toothed leaves, fuzzy flower buds on flower stalk. Small white flowers.

Maybe Garlic Mustard
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thanks, RJ but not that! I take loads of that out of the area every Spring. I have searched for this one, heart shaped leaves, opposite arrangement, tiny white flowers on flower stalk, pubescent bud and flower stalk, VA and not VA because it could be an invasive something and could be common all over US and elsewhere...I just need maybe a Family or Genus so I can narrow it down...

Circaea canadensis !

I found it here....if you live near these states this is an invaluable resource!
