Mystery Visitor Is A Weed Called Acalypha
Ask the Expert:what might this plant be?
Foud it in my wildflower garden next to False Sunflowers and New England
Asters. Might be a weed, Earl
Plant Expert Reply:
I believe it is a Acalypha virginica (Virginia threeseed mercury).Â It is considered a weed with mild allergen properties.Â It is a member of the Euphorbiaceae family.
Just a side note:Â This plant is a sister to a houseplant called Chenille plant (Acalypha hispida).Â Which just goes to show you one man's weed is another man's treasure.
