    It’s good to see you up here Jim, please post away :)! Plants images from photos, they fool me often, it’s good to have others set of eyes for plants identification. With the original first pic, I thought it could be burdock, rough cocklebur, etc… by the way thanks to your post, it jogs my memory of the Smallanthus uvedalius with an interesting common name plant ‘bear’s foot’.

    Thanks, Laura. I should have known better than to post on a thread you were contributing to, with a wild guess. On seeing your ID, I should have paid better attention to the close-ups.

    Thanks, Laura. I was taking a wild guess, as one shouldn’t. On reading your ID, the closeups should have totally ruled out my offering.

    Appreciate these additional photos Brent! The tendrils with big leaves, and with those flower buds I’m wondering if yours is in the Cucurbita genus (?). Its species include cultivars known as squash, winter squash, pumkin, etc…Since this is coming up by itself, you will need the fruits to narrow down the ID. For now check out these included links for some of the species images & information of this genus. Best wishes! Link to species C. maxima’s images with male flower.

    Possibly Smallanthus uvedalius, known as bear’s foot or hairy leafcup. But, if so, the leaf is not typical of specimens I’ve seen.
