These plants started growing in my pot. Big leaves, tiny white flowers, like Star of David shaped, with a "line pattern" and a Yellow "bud" in the center. The flowers look too pretty to be a weed, and I'm hoping any of you could let me know the name of this plant. Many thanks.

Yea,sure is Solanum-a Nightshade,my guess is what I know as S. americanum but this is not an easy group to ID(esp.from pictures).Weedy but interesting.

Definitely a nightshade- the leaves remind me of my tomatillo plant (Physalis ixocarpa)
