Hi,

I wanted to see if you could help me identify what a couple of plants in my backyard are. The first set of photos looks like a penny sized leaf of either a parsley or geranium but i don't think that is what it is since it seems to be flowering a pink flower. The second set I am unsure if it is morning glory or bindweed. and last set of photos I have no idea what it is. It comes out from a central point like a rose plant but I am not sure.

Thank you so much for your help!

#1 & 2 Lamium species, possibly Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) ?


#3 & #4 Remind me somewhat of a plant I found sprouting in my garden last year that someone identified as Devil's Trumpet (Datura)


#5 ?

Second one you probably wont know until it blooms but if you don't want it there I would put an herbicide of some kind on there because once it reaches some size it will be hard to kill.

First one is henbit and the last one looks like a rose to me.

The first is Henbit. The second looks like Morning Glory or Bindweed. The third does look like a rose but does it have thorns?

The last one has no thorns. My dad claimed it was a rose but I haven't seen it bloom in years. Here is a photo of the whole plant.

Thank you so much for helping with this! I would have never been able to find the henbit because i was thinking it was a buttercup based on google images. I appreciate all your help!

number 3/4 reminds me of Wild buckwheat – Polygonum convolvulus. since I think I see sheats of stipule (Ochrea) there, can you give closer photo focusing on the stem, at the joint of petiole to the stem?

Yep, I can take a closer photo tomorrow when its not raining. I think you are right though, I looked up wild buckwheat and it looks exactly like it!

Good eye @Daisyl and @tofitropic! #3 & 4 does look like Bindweed:


Re: #5: Do you recall what the blooms looked like; size, color? I'm not very familiar with Roses but I do believe there are some thornless varieties.

There are definitely thornless roses. The leaves on this plant are more serrated than any rose I know.

I wonder if it might be a Lady Banks Rose? They are thornless and have a scrambling habit but upon googling and checking our database, I couldn't find any clear leaf images for comparison.

I'll take a closer photo of the "rose" later today as well. Hopefully it is a rose and not a weed lol. I once took care of a giant weed that I thought was a sunflower (had planted in same spot) and when it got 6 feet tall, I realized it wasn't lol

So when I went outside to take a photo of the bindweed, it was gone! I think my father must have pulled it. But here is a photo of the possible rose plant. I noticed flower buds on them today!

Also, while I was taking a photo of that plant, i came across 2 others next to it that I was unsure of and hoping you may be able to identify.

Thank you!

The one one in that last photo (the vine, climbing the fence) looks like Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia)

The second to last (there are two images) could be a Sumac of some type. Maybe.

#2 & #3 above may be Rhus species. Those leaves do remind me of Winged Sumac (Rhus copallina)

The tree looks like Ailanthus altissima to me. Just a guess but if you crush some of the leaves it has a very distinctive odor.

It looks similar in structure but the leaves are a little different. The leaves on mine are more pointy and have a reddish tint to it. It looks almost tropical. I have no idea how it got there, but all of the leaves are branching from a thick 4-5 inch tree trunk

"Tree of Heavens" new growth has a red flush of color also. This article has all the points of identification. with photos. This is the only temperate zone Ailanthus and the rest are tropical zone. They're often confused with Sumac. One thing not in this article is that the branches are very brittle and if you were to remove one of the compound leaves from the new green branches you'll see a heart shaped leaf scar. You should be able to definitively rule out "Tree of Heaven" with this article. You can rule out Winged Sumac also because there are no wings.
