Regarding the plant "Teaweed (Sida rhombifolia)" in @dave's plant list

dave said:This weed is very strong and hard to pull. The stem is full of fibers and hard to break. I suspect it would be very useful for basket making.

Would love to know what this is if anyone knows. I once knew the name; just forgot it.

I think that may be Sida rhombifolia. It's in the Malvaceae family and has a small yellow flower.
