Looks like lambs quarter except for those pod like flowers. My horse took a bite of this next to his new barn. I’m very afraid it is part of night shade family. Located in northern virginia area. Please, looking for an answer fast. Cannot find this anywhere on web!

    It appears to me, you have two different plants in the photo. One looks like lamb quarter plant. Of the second plant, I can’t see its flower’s petals clearly to be certain. I speculate this could be a species in the Silene genus (badder campion)? If it isn’t Silene, make new post with photos of the plant with flower, and a closeup of the flowers itself. Click on images from the link below to enlarge. Best wishes!

    I have this in my yard in herndon, va. I always thought it was lamb’s quarter. I’ve never let mine flower. I can see that the flower in your pic looks different than lamb’s quarter. It will be interesting to see what this is.
