Erechtites from Joyce in SC

Posted on |

See picture – many of these growing in my garden – coin is a quarter.


my best guess on this is the fireweed, or American burnweed, Erechtites hieraciifolius, a common weed, considered native.  It is usually found in disturbed soils.  You may wish to re-submit an image with flowers later for confirmation.
