Plant or Weed? Can anyone tell me?

Postby naynay804 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 1:25 am

This plant or weed just came up in my flowerbed. It is kind of pretty but I don't know what it is. Can anyone tell me? It has been growing less than a month and is over 8 ft tall. The leaves and the flowers close up at night. Should I pull this thing up or what? Thanks, Renee :?:

seems like canolan or how is it called in English, to me, but the leaves are interesting, can you make more detailed photos?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Do you mean Canola?
The leaves do not match. Not that I have any other proposition to make. If the Original poster could also give an idea of her/his geographical location, it might help.
