Others sources have told me that this is Spiraea. I believe my pic is Spiraea japonica, of some type.

Wow! Thank you all so much for your awesomeness. A few things to consider…

#1 This one has been a total pain in my butt! I am pretty sure it is not prickly lettuce as the leaves are smaller and flowers are not yellow and have 9 petals. The flowers are very similar to False Garlic, but with 3 more petals. I will check out the seeds and gather more info.

#6. We have Ipomea pandurate in the bottom of the property and these flowers are much smaller,. There are only maybe ½” across. Certainly the same family, but I’m pretty sure what is pictured is not Ipomea pandurate. I’ll attach a picture for comparison.

#7 is, in fact, a close up of one flower on a spike. I think it may be Solidago petiolaris. Woodland Goldenrod, but I am not positive.

#9 Mitch, my first thought was also Ironweed, but the leaves look different. Both Ironweed and Joe Pye Weed have thinner leaves from my experience. The calyx also seems to be different. I will check the stem to see if it is hollow or not next time I go out there. More info seems to be in order.

#10 I am not sure that the leaves have the coarse teeth along the leaf margins like Late Boneset does. Maybe could be Tall Boneset, Eupatorium altissimum? I need to get another pic to see how many prominent veins there are along the length of the blades. 3 would be tall, while 1 would be late.

I think we've got the others licked. 

Thank you Rose! According to my field guide we have 18 species of that genus in the Ozarks. Some type of "smartweed." Thanks for your help!

I thought it might be Boneset of some sort. Thanks Joylynn!

Abutilon theophrasti

or at least much closer, maybe??

or other related plant :

Abutilon indicum



Whammo! Nice Leila! It cracks me up when an article lists a plant as both "invasive/damaging" AND Edible. lol Apparently the leaves can be eaten. I find this is the case with many so called weeds.

actually i am stumped or unsure on many, but this is what i got for you -

#1 looks a lot like wild lettuce in the foilage, but not in the flower. some rare type of wild lettuce is my guess

#2 reminds me of a hibiscus, particularly the seed pod photos. so some kind of hibiscus or malva family.

#3 i dont know the name, but i recognize it by having weeded it out.

#4 i think it is sedum, that seems to be one of the more common types? pic of sedum

#6 is bindweed ish, morning glory, bindweed.

# 9 is it monarda ? some kind of bee balm, or bergamont?



Thanks Leila! #1 is definitely something in the Aster family. I think you nailed #4. My first thought on #6 was bindweed, but I couldn't find any flowers in pictures that matched exactly. Definitely Morning Glory family at least, I'd say. While #9 is similar to bee balm/bergamot, I am familiar with those. It may be related, but is something different, I think. Thanks for your help!
