What is this?

jamie1450January 8, 2014

Any idea what this is? I put a pumpkin carcass in our yard in October and now these are popping up everywhere in that side of the yard but not exactly where I put the pumpkin. I just never noticed these plants/weeds until today. I'm putting in my first garden this year so I know very little about gardening. Thanks!

That looks very much like a weed that grows around here.
It is Common Mallow.

It looks like Mallow to me, too. It is super-duper invasive in my yard. An attractive plant, and the flowers are are pretty, too, but don't let it fool you. Let just one of of these suckers go to seed and you will have 500 million of them growing everywhere. Each root goes clear to china and if it breaks off...it just grows back. Every little root left in the ground grows a whole new plant. Can you tell, I don't like mallow? :)

Definitely Malva neglecta also called cheeses by the more polite. Also all parts are edible both raw or cooked. An Old World native originally.
