I usually am the one helping others with ID's on this forum, but it looks like something has come along that has stumped me. It looks very familiar, but I can't put my finger on what it is. It just popped up in between some Chrysanthemums and Centaureas. Hoping someone here can refresh my memory.
I had a tree come up in the yard that everyone calls Silver leaf... supposed to be a "lovely little tree" I have pulled a couple dozen of them up and am still trying to find a botanic name for it...Not maple, or poplar or any other that I can find with that name...but it grows really fast has small leaves with silver undersides...and spreads like wildfire...and is NOT lovely at all. 8-(

That would be just my luck...and sometimes I think I've seen every horrible noxious weed that exists, but there's always a new one to throw me a curveball. Hopefully this turns out to be something pretty, at least, regardless of whether it's noxious or not.
As soon as it gets light tomorrow I'll take a picture with a ruler next to it. In the meantime, Sedum aizoon does have very similar foliage but after studying both the Sedum and the unknown plant in my yard, I really don't think it matches. I wasn't able to find a multitude of good images of the young growth habit of that variety of Sedum though, so the verdict is still out on it.
Angelonia also is very similar looking, but Angelonia leaves aren't as serrated as the plant in question. It could be a variety I'm not familiar with, so I'll keep looking into that.
Snapdragon...similar to Angelonia, doesn't have the serrated leaves. At least not the common variety.
Asclepias and Dianthus look negative, but again, I really appreciate the suggestions. If anything, at least it narrows stuff down a bit.
