Would love some help identifying these two plants. They are growing extremely quickly! I planted two baby bushes in the exact same spots last year (can’t remember what kind, but they flowered, although they were still very small), and I assumed they did not make it through our extremely cold winter (Southeast VA), since many of my other new bushes did not either. I have mulched and watered them, and may be the only person on earth watering and mulching weeds for all I know! Thanks in advance!

    I did some research (purchased them on the internet), and it was in fact Hardy Hibiscus I planted, the different leaves threw me off. They were so small last year, so I am shocked they both made it through the winter. The one does look a lot like a Ragweed though, from the photos I looked up ;). I am just venturing out from houseplants, so anything outdoors is still somewhat of a mystery to me (and we back up to woods, so I always have something random growing from the animals ‘donating’ seeds). Thanks for the help, now to impatiently wait for blooms!

    Thanks, stone. I’m just a wild plant amateur, and know very little about cultivars. I usually hold off to see if anyone else responds before venturing an ID.

    They’re both hardy hibiscus. Probably some of the hibiscus coccinea hybrids. Here’s some of the hardy hibiscus offered by plant delights…
