came up in my hosta/east side bed. grows fast.
the leaves have a soft velvety feel, almost fuzzy, but they don't appear fuzzy-just feel that way.

Looks very similar to my plant that was ID'd as a type of Hibiscus. Maybe you have a Swamp Rose Mallow/Hibiscus moscheutos?

thanks for the suggestions, I did wonder if it was some type of hibiscus, but I have been here for 4 years and haven't had any planted over that direction. I guess I will just leave it for now and give it some more time.

Thank You!

To update, this IS a hibiscus, came up this year and I left it, it got about6 ft tall and has deep rose colored blooms. The blooms are not that big impressive and don't open well. It is on the east side of the house though, maybe that is why. Doesn't get alot of water and only sun part of the day, looks kind of leggy. It just opened it's first bloom yesterday. I am going to remove it though.
