Hi,
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

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?

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
