SOLVED: SOLVED: Very tall plant with wide leaves

San Antonio, TX

This plant just started growing in my garden. It is very tall, just over 6 feet now and the leaves are very wide. It looks like it might bloom tiny white flowers.

Thank you

It appears to be a castor been plant

Really kwanjin? Mine had much more pointy lobes on the leaves.
But there's lots of thing s around TX that I've never seen up over here.

I am not sure it is either :(
I think the castor bean plant looks a lot closer though. I am going to add another pic to see if that helps

I'm still not seeing Castor bean there. Castor is i family of Euphorbia- could be a cousin. THe leaves here look sort of velvety- is there a weed there called Velvetleaf, and what does that look like?

Nope, that doesn't match either (velvetleaf)

Malvaceae family?

How about Paulownia tomentosa, Empress tree. If there are any in the are they will seed. And the leaf has the serrated edges common to P tomentosa
