morning Everyone 

during a bit of a clean up yesterday I came across the two plants below. One has popped up in my pot of delphiniums which I cut back recently. It has grown very rapidly so I’m thinking possible weed. Bottom photo.

the second one is growing under a Rose bush and is very spindly, but possibly as it is struggling for space and light. First photo.

as always thanks for your ideas and counsel.

    The top one looks like hemp.....possibly.

    I agree, it looks like Cannabis sativa, probably a seed from a bird feeder.

    The second has me baffled, that leaf shape with the terminal notch is quite unusual.  The tulip tree, Liriodendron tulipifera, is the only plant I know that has a terminal notch, but the overall leaf shape is not like your plant, more like the leaf of a London plane with the end cut off.  I do hope you find out!
  • Think its figwort Latin name unpronouncable bit thuggish self seeds everywhere insignificant flower although the bees love it bit takes up a bit of space biannual
  • Sorry that's the second one

    The leaves of figwart seem more pointed and more slender, so don’t thing it’s that one.
