Sida acuta

Sida acuta
Sida acuta

Common name wireweed
Family malvaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z9-11)
Flowers pale yellow (late summer-fall)
Size 24-36"
Light sun-part shade

Wiry upright stems with slender alternating slightly toothed leaves. Small flowers reportedly appear by late summer, but the plant I found in our garden had already bloomed when I spotted it in early May. Although interesting, the plant has an overall messy appearance, so I'm going to classify it as a weed. It had already dropped some seed by the time I found it, so I suspect it will make a repeat appearance in our garden.

This is a weed in our garden
