Hmm looks like you might have a malva/marrow - are all the leaves on one stalk or is each one coming up out of the ground separately? If they're coming up separately, it could be creeping charlie/ground ivy Whaddya think?

The leaves remind me of my Hollyhock that I started this year. They take 2 years to grow & bloom. I'll try to get a pic when the sun comes up.

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

My lawn is over-ridden with creeping charlie. The leaves look similar, but too big to be charlie. If it is charlie, it will have tiny purple flowers, it's in the orchid family and they are really cute, but it is known to "creep" all over the place!

Ok, here's a photo of my Hollyhock leaves, that I just started this spring.

So, I think they look pretty similar to your leaves.

That looks just like a vine I have been trying to rid my lawn of for two yrs. The garden center by me said it is a perenial vine and left un- checked will slowly take over the lawn. I am in the process of using weed be gone in my tank sprayer. They pop up with little purple flowers in late spring and can really smother the lawn.

It is funny how size makes such a difference here. If it is small it is creeping charlie, medium is malva (all over my garden) and big is Hollyhock. Without the scale it is hard to tell. LOL laugh

Well...the leaves do get quite large. To give you an idea of the size, to the right you can see some leaves from a new catnip plant. They look a lot like the Hollyhock leaves but are rounder. Each leaf comes out of the ground separately but from the same spot.

I think, if it's all coming out of the ground on separate stalks yet in the same spot then it's not Hollyhock - because Hollyhocks grow all leaves on 1 main stalk...right? Unless there are other leaves on each main stalk? I can't really tell...but I'm sticking with creeping charlie! laugh

Nah, I dunno. I think I wanna take that back. it looks to me like creeping charlie has more serrated edges than this does.

creeping charlie

I dunno though - doesn't grow like malva or Hollyhock stem-wise. Duh

Before mine bloomed this year it looked like a patch of leaves with no real stalks. Eventually it did grow up and then got leaves on teh stalks but last year it looked more like what she showed.

I do however think I have the Creeping Charlie in my lawn. I pull it all the time.

I went to the post office this morning, and I think I saw creeping charlie...it's a little more ruffled on the edges, and a bit more shiny-like, if what I saw was in fact creeping charlie! confused

My weedie eye says the Hollyhock/malva family...

NOT Creepin' Charlie!!!!
The creepin charlie is a ground cover..
it can grow up in the air if supported by
something else taller, growing side of it...
other wise it's too week to stand straight up..

Mary,
Get your weedie eyeballs out..
and do a check...
Open the first picture...the one originally posted.
Then go and open your photo...
and if you can, see them side by side...

Notice the texture on the first leaves..
It's rough looking...bumpy sorta..
Your photo's leaves are smooth...

And even though they have scalloped edges...
They're not as scalloped as your photo..
and the veining is different too!!!!
The veining almost makes it like sections in the original one... the other one you posted, they
seem to disappear into the end of the leaf.

Do you notice a difference???

IF this is Hollyhock (and I'm almost certain it is), they take 2 years to get thier flowers. So, you'd only see the green this year. Those seriously look just like the Hollyhock leaves I *had*, until Steve decided to help me mow one day the past week. :rolleyes:

Yeaaaaaaa... LOTS of rocks, that I dug up when I wanted to plant stuff..lol. BUT, I had this planted next to my deck, in a "bald spot". Some weeds had grown near it, and he wasn't thinking I'd planted anything there.. You almost couldn't see the Hollyhock without looking for it. He also wouldn't have recognized it, cuz, well, he doesn't do that "gardening stuff". By the time I saw where he was mowing, it was to late to yell stop. He wouldn't have heard me over the mower. :rolleyes: He pretty much *never* mows.. it was a freak thing.

Meg,

My Hollyhocks got mowed over last year and both places where they got mowed bloomed this year. So I hope yours come back and bloom next year as well.
