There is a LOT of this growing in our yard & even my herbal “expert” friend was at a loss. The leaves are soft & slightly fuzzy. When bruised they have a lemony, almost antiseptic smell that is quite nice. I’d like to find out what it is to see if I can infuse the leaves for medicinal or aromatic use.

    When you first posted these pictures…. I was like… I know that plant…. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of what it was… until the ones at my house started to bloom. I believe you have camphor weed: useful? If you want to attract pollinators… And these days, attracting pollinators is becoming very important…

    Looks like some very young leaves of broadleaf dock (Rumex obtusifolius) to me. Maybe horseweed is a common name for it that I’m unfamiliar with – unless I’ve just gotten the wrong plant.

    Kind of looks like horseweed to me. I’m not sure if it has any useful properties.
