I have this plant coming up in a back corner of our property is it just a weed?
SOLVED: Is this a weed of plant?
Looks like a japanese lantern. Sorry only know that name. the pods turn orange. Annual I believe.
Well thats what I thought it looked like but I have never sown that type of seed and there isnt anyone living that close by. I didnt know if it was by bird or maybe some kind of native.
Nicandra physalodes - Shoo Fly plant, has blue flowers before the pods form or possibly, Physalis alkekengi - Chinese or Japanese Lantern which has cream bell shaped flowers.
I'd say those are the physalis. It's a perennial and an agressive spreader too. It could have been planted years ago. The nicandra is annual but one heck-of-a re-seeder. If allowed to set seed they come up all over.
I had a shoo-fly one year. Was a very happy fellow on the edge of my veggie garden so it got water and all. Thing was 5' by 5'. Fun plant!
All weeds ARE plants. But not all plants are weeds! Depends on what angle you look at it ;o)
Tomatillos (Physalis ixocarpa) probably, but because there are many members of the Physalis genus and some of them are poisonous to cattle and horses, I wouldn't eat yours unless you could get an in-person positive ID from a knowledgeable source.
I grow tomatillos every year, but haven't planted any since the first year I grew them. That leads me to believe that yours could have easily been planted by a bird.
