I live in Indiana, Zone 5. This plant is coming up in my flower beds. Is it a sappling? Perennial? Weed?

    I compared the Paulownia leaves to my mystery sapling and something is not quite right. I have several “Rose of Sharon” and other Hibiscus on my property and it is not in that family. I did receive a comment that it could be a Hazel bush and that is highly possible. I’ve taken two additional pictures with a ruler in place. On the second image please note the growth on the stem and compare to the Hazel images on the following website. I will have to start a new post to add images. Thank you all for your patience!

    Not Paulownia. Somewhat resembles, but leaf shape doesn’t quite match. Also, in another direction entirely, somewhat resembles goosefoot, but leaf seems too serrated for that. Possibly also a sapling of a number of different trees. Maybe one of the site experts will nail it.

    I don’t have a reference for the leaf size, but the upper picture looks a lot like a Paulownia.
