Had this plant volunteer in my garden. It's about 10 feet tall and will get many small yellow flowers (had a few last year as well). Any ideas?

Rolling on the floor laughing Carol, I read your response as "Noxious" glauca. It is Nicotiana glauca but noxious fits well.

Thank you Carol! Much appreciated. Apparently it is poisonous and invasive, so out it goes! Impressive rate of growth, tho.

That impressive rate of growth and self seeding are exactly why they are invasive, along with Castor bean, Biddens, and many others in this part of the country. Hilarious!

Tree Tobacco (Nicotiana glauca) sure is pretty, a shame it's so noxious. Green Grin! We have issues with many invasive species here in Florida too. Sighing!
