Can anyone help me identify these three plants--they pop up in my yard, and I wonder whether to keep them or not. Thanks.

John

Welcome, John! Where are these plants growing (what part of the world)? That will help narrow down ID's. Thumbs up

The bottom one looks like a Bay Laurel (Umbellularia).. Are you on the West Coast? See if it has a strong scent. The squirrels plant them in really annoying places here, and they have a long tap root..

The middle one looks like an evergreen Viburnum that has escaped in the Santa Cruz mountains where I live. They are thrip magnets here, so I pull them out.
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Do viburnums have compound leaves, tho? The middle plant in question looks to have odd pinnate leaves.

Hi, guys,

Thanks for answering my questions. I live in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Based on your suggestions, I look up the images of the plants, but couldn't quite match them with each other. do you have other suggestions? Thanks.

The Bay Laurel probably wouldn't be a match then...
I think you're right, Carter... I looked at it and thought it looked like being cut off caused several stems to sprout.. So never mind on the Viburnum either.
