Need help identifying this wild plant

Posted by kokoliko zone 9 (My Page) on

Hi All,

We recently completed a major landscaping project and I'm getting ready to lay out new sprinklers and grass. However, after our landscaping project, these wild plants started sprouting up all over our front yard.

They grow at a fast rate. I've seen these grow from less than 1 foot to 4 foot high in a matter of weeks. In fact, one of these plants I noticed it grow from 4 feet to 6 feet high in less than 2 weeks.

I pull them out and more grow somewhere else. I'm attaching a picture of one of these plants 5 feet high. Can someone identify what this wild plant is??

Thank you,

Looks like Nicotiana glauca.

I would appreciate help identifying this plant with dark, heart-shaped leaves that I photographed in a swamp in eastern NY State (Putnam County). Thanks!

DonTurner, sorry I don't know your plant. More eyes will see it if you start a new discussion for this ID request, either here or in "name that plant" forum.
