This is growing at rapid speed. I have been told it could be Velvetleaf. I would like to know exactly what it is, so to know if to keep it or dig it up.

    Its a Paulownia, sometimes called Empress Tree or Princess Tree. Can be a nuisance, but it is cultivated for its hard wood. If you Google it, you will learn a lot.

    It is not a tree. We have one growing near a tree in Toccoa. It dies in the fall but comes back in the spring. In the fall it “flowers” at the very top of the plant (looks like green Queen Anne Lace at the top). I cannot find it identified anywhere. Good luck!

    I agree with bobmey. This is a baby princess tree.
