Notes:

The plant is now a good 3 feet tall in a raised bed. It has large, blade shaped soft leaves, sort of chamois feeling. The first flowers were five petals in a golden yellow, and now it seems some if not all of them have some kind of pod developing after the flower.

    The pic I submitted is NOT an abutilon/ velvet leaf. Leaves are not pubescent/downy/chamois-like. Flower petals are threadlike and yellow. Barely noticeable . Seed pod strongly resembles a miniature poppy seedpod.

    Thanks, Jake-I already pulled the plant as all the others in the bed were taking a hit from the nutrient suck of the velvet leaf. I will share the content of the post you found with other interested parties!

    Doing a little research on velvetleaf I discovered….”The unripe seeds are edible raw. seeds taste similar to sunflower seeds” An interesting read is found here:http://www.eattheweeds.com/velvet-leaf-fiber-and-food/
