I have these plants growing throughout my wooded area. I have just called it native Lamb’s ear. I have no idea if that is even remotely close to its real name. What is this plant and should I keep it?

    Keep it.

    It is a particular grievance of mine when people think they need to rush out and poison their wildflowers.

    your plant looks like one of the golden asters. (Chrysopsis sp.)
    expect blooms in the late summer.

    Not planning on killing they bloomed already. I saw one other called a champion rose alba.

    My plants do not get that high. Mainly ground cover white blooms early spring. Rose campion goes to tall also.

    I’m almost positive it a variety of lambs Ear.If it matures with a group of seperated stalks ( big as a mans thumb.) headed with a cluster of nodules.
