This plant grew rapidly in my front yard. Odd thing is last year a corn stalk grew in the same place. This does not look the same as a corn stalk, not sure if its a variation. Leaves are oval in shape and are slightly jagged on the edges. Looks like an abundance of budding on it. It is also growing out of or out of the direct area of another flower i have at its base.

    American burnweed. We call it fireweed around the Atlanta area. Here are some good shots of fireweed growing North of you: Mature plants in the Southeast can reach 10 – 12 feet in the fall. The seed disperses in the wind like a dandelion seed. Don’t let it bloom and reseed this fall.
