What is this plant?
« on: August 30, 2020, 11:41 »
The little greenhouse in my new home has this plant growing in one of the beds and I don't know what is it. It started out as a single stem but now has several shoots growing from the top. Anyone got any clues?

That would make sense, because if it is in the greenhouse, it perhaps is a plant that needs tender care.  Mrs B

The leaves don't look right for abutilon.  Its common name is flowering maple and the leaves are maple leaf shape.

Is it possible to get a close-up picture of the leaves?  Do they feel like a deciduous plant leaf or more sturdy, like an evergreen?

Question that comes into my head is ...was it planted deliberately? If not could it be a rogue willow seedling ?

I think the previous owner just grew tomatoes etc so don't think it's anything that was deliberately planted in there. The leaves are not looking willow-like, the end of the new growth looks similar to a sycamore but it's definitely not that either. Here's the close-up you requested.

Now I've seen the leaves in close-up, I agree, it's definitely not an abutilon, but I really can't say what it is.
