Plant identification, name this plant

by ByLightOfMoon
The tall growing plant has been by my porch all summer a garden flag in background, but has never bloomed. Could it be a plant that takes a while to establish itself or just a weed? Does anyone know? It has three leaves tips on each stem.Thanks in advance for any help in IDing this plant! Smiles, Cyndi

    It appears to be a maple tree based on the shape of the leaf.
  • Colleen Walpert Colleen Walpert on Nov 16, 2015
    I think it is a maple also. If you want to save it, you should dig it asap since it is growing too close to the house. Plant in a sunny area. Many maples are soft and it may not be worth saving. If it turn yellow/brown in the fall and the branches droop toward the ground, it is probably soft. You can thank a little bird for this tree!
  • Ann Ann on Nov 16, 2015
    In some of the pictures, the leaves are not as lobed as a maple tree. Look in to the possibility that it could be a Rose of Sharon or Althea plant (these can become as large as a small tree.) Because it has grown quickly, I would move it whatever it is.
  • Patty Loveless Patty Loveless on Nov 16, 2015
    Nothing is a weed unless you don't like it! I am not it agreement that is a maple nor a Rose of Sharon. They tend to be single stemmed with new shoots much smaller and slower to establish. The leaves look too large for that. If you like it keep it and if it does not impress next year yank it out. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
  • It is a Rose of Sharon. Rose of Sharon can grow either as a tree or more of a bush. They are invasive and grow extremely fast. I have one that is 7 years old and it is 12 ft tall and about 5' wide and it is a multi stemmed bush. There is probably a Rose of Sharo nearby. The seeds float and reseed anywhere and everywhere. Turning yellow in fall is what Rose of Sharons do too plus the leaves have the same lobed pattern.
  • Arlene Fitzpatrick Arlene Fitzpatrick on Nov 16, 2015
    I think it is a Hardy Hibescus - in which case it need LOTS of sun. If that is what it is, it will give up hugh white, pink or red flowers that look like hollyhocks on steroids.
    • Nancy Russell Nancy Russell on Jul 06, 2017

      That's what I hope it is. I planted one last year and every one said it would not come back. When it wen dormant I thought it was dead. This summer the dead limbs started putting out leaves just like the new one I bought. It is huge now. I had it dug up and planted in a large pot so I can take it with me when I move. We shall see what it does.

  • Sue Sanders Sue Sanders on Nov 16, 2015
    If this is a Rose of Sharon it will grow fast. It has beautiful blooms. I have the colors pink and white and it blooms most of summer. I trim the branches to make it keep branching as this makes it fuller and this will produce many blooms.
  • Susan Susan on Nov 16, 2015

    Thanks everyone for such FAST Answers! I very much appreciate them! Smiles, Cyndi
    • Janet Pizaro Janet Pizaro on Nov 16, 2015
      @Cyndi Neumann So what do you think it is? Just curious since everyone basically has the same opinion. The fact that this did not flower I think rules out Rose-of -Sharon of which is in the Hibiscus family but the leaves are a lot smaller. There are however perennial Hibiscus that have a leaf very similar but again it would have flowered. So Please give your feed back.
  • Cyndi Neumann Cyndi Neumann on Nov 16, 2015
    Well, I looked on Google from the answers here, It really looks like the Rose of Sharon but has not bloomed. The leaf texture looked identical! Not a maple, we have those all over the forest and not veined correct.And cottonwood, I really doubt, not such a heart shaped leaf. Rose of Sharon, Althea ( dave's garden and google )Hibiscus syriacus - all same plant I think this is it! I live in a forest so not sure how it got there other than by birds nearby. I do take native clippings but not of this. Thanks again! Smile, Cyndi
    • Janet Pizaro Janet Pizaro on Nov 16, 2015
      @Cyndi Neumann The plant is not rose of sharon,the leaf structure is of a maple type. There are hibiscus that have that leaf however she stated there was no flowers.that is the key to the answer.
  • JoAnn Dibeler JoAnn Dibeler on Nov 17, 2015
    The woodiness of the stalks seems to indicate a sapling of some sort of tree, but one that has multiple trunks. I thought Rose of Sharon also but agree with the other opinions on that. Could be a foliage shrub. The leaves just look so familiar. They are turning yellow, that could be a hint. Hang onto it and see what it does next year.
  • Cyndi Neumann Cyndi Neumann on Nov 17, 2015
    I posted last night I thought this plant might be a"Rose of Sharon" from your repliesbut now I see it also growing in a succulent container I had brought inside forthe winter. Now, I am just not sure what it is, maybe just a native plantgrowing in this area of western North Carolina. I will continue to look aroundmy yard, I can't believe I did not notice this when I brought it inside. Theleaves sure do look the same! They are soft, not like a Maple or tree like plant growingfrom a clump as it the larger plant I posted earlier. I am not going to store it inside for thewinter and will just see what happens next year with the larger one I will leave alone for now. I will put a markerby it as I do with my Plant ID'ed and followed by a ? mark. I again Thank you for all of your answers! Blessings, Cyndi
  • Barbara Barbara on Nov 17, 2015
    Kind of reminds me of my Mexican sunflower that took a few years to bloom. The leaf looks similar.
  • Jo Mercer Jo Mercer on Nov 17, 2015
    Rose of Sharon, Hibiscus syriacus. They seed prolifically and pop up everywhere--a rather bothersome invasive plant. It may to too young to bloom right now. Also, if it doesn't get enough sun it won't bloom well.
  • Paula McCarthy Paula McCarthy on Nov 17, 2015
    If it is a hibiscus hybrid it may take up to 5 years to bloom - mine did. It grew until it reached a height of about 6' feet and almost 4 feet wide and then one summer it burst into the most beautiful 6" diameter white flower with a ruby throat. I admit your leaf looks very much like that plant. A Rose of Sharon (some people call the hybrid hibiscus a Rose of Sharon but it is NOT a Rose of Sharon, the hibiscus' hybrid flower is much different from a Rose of Sharon, which has a 3" diameter bloom of ruffled petals and is usually a dark magenta color. Rose of Sharon also has a smaller, more compact and darker green leaf than what this appears. However it is hard to tell what the size actually is. A true Rose of Sharon has stems which grow in a manner much like a fan, from the ground up, the hybrid Hibiscus grows more like a spindly tree. Also, it's hard to tell for sure but it looks like there are some yellow leaves at the bottom - this could be because of the seasonal changes or that it needs some plant food - a lack of which could also explain no bloom. Be warned if it is either of these plants they can get very large - my Rose of Sharon is about 12 feet tall and 6 feet wide. It blooms profusely in July. My Hibiscus hybrid blooms in late June, through July and sometimes gets a second bloom in September depending on weather.
  • Definitely Rose of Sharon or althea. They can propagate everywhere. I consider them a pain.
  • Rosanne Rosanne on Nov 18, 2015
    It looks like hibiscus
  • Judy Judy on Nov 21, 2015
    Rose of Sharon....will take a couple years before it the spring it takes longer to get leaves so don't think it is dead. Is pretty in flower...I have 3 different colours. Bush will grow about 7ft high

  • Sarah A. Victory Sarah A. Victory on Nov 28, 2015
    I love Rose of Sharon. I have several Blue ones now but I have had several other colors in the past. They are reliable consistent bloomers for your garden, however I have had sprouts from the dropping seeds.
  • Sandra Sandra on Nov 28, 2015
    I used to have a white Rose of Sharon with a red center. I got it because my mother loved them. I had it when I lived in Michigan and it bloomed all summer. I wish I had that plant. I live in Florida but not sure it would work here. I believe it's a relative to the hibiscus, so possibly they would work here's.
  • Cat1786735 Cat1786735 on Nov 29, 2015
    Yes, it's a Rose of Sharon.
  • Cyndi Neumann Cyndi Neumann on Nov 29, 2015
    Thank you everyone for all of your answers! I think I will just leave it alone this winter and see what happens next spring. It never bloomed last summer. I should say the pots behind this large plant on the balcony porch is just water bowls for my dogs, they prefer bowls with stones in them to drink from and we have beautiful stones here when wet are very colorful. Also, the pink plant is my Christmas Cactus in full bloom I will post a photo of it also. Thanks again, Smiles, Cyndi
  • Tcs Tcs on Nov 29, 2015
    Your plants are beautiful but I wouldn't hold my breath on that other one. It's a tree. Some kind of oak. They grow slowly. We've had them come up in several places where there is fertile soil. Usually just cut them back and pull up the roots unless you wanted to dig it up and plant it somewhere else.
  • Iberkeley Iberkeley on Nov 29, 2015
    It's part of the hibiscus family and it probably does well in Florida, although it likes fertile soil. You may have to amend in southern FL where the soil is rather poor.
  • Sheri L. Putnam-Cline Sheri L. Putnam-Cline on Dec 03, 2015
    Reminds me of a European Black Current (Ribes nigrum), maybe the "Ben Lair". Sweeden has large growing programs. I'm growing Jostaberries, a cross of black current and gooseberry. They are breeding barbless. Link:
  • Tommi L. Perkins Tommi L. Perkins on Dec 16, 2015
    Looks like a Rose of Sharon to me. Dig it up and put it in a more spacious location. Sun loving, it will get big-6 to 8 feet. Will not bloom without sun.
  • Beauam Beauam on Dec 22, 2015
    It looks like an Abutilon. these can have flowers ranging from a deep pink through oranges to yellow. Very pretty shrub. just be patient.
  • Suzie Henderson Suzie Henderson on Dec 25, 2015
    "Rose of Sharon" and "member of the Hibiscus Family" are on the right track. Rose of Sharon IS a member of the hibiscus family. My "sweetie", a landscaper, agrees it is among the hibiscus family but can't be specific. Hope this helps/
  • Joy Joy on Dec 25, 2015
    Maybe a confederate rose
  • Martha Martha on Dec 28, 2015
    I,m pretty sure it is a rose of Sharon. If this is its first year that,s why it hasn't bloomed yet. Not sure how long it takes them to mature enough to bloom. It does need sun like Tommi P said.
  • Cyndi Neumann Cyndi Neumann on Jan 01, 2016
    Thanks to EVERYONE for replying to my question here, I have learned so much with Googling all of your answers and it could be any of them, it looks like so many of them. Will watch and see, it has nothing much left on it right now since it turned cold, Thanks you again SO very Much! All answers are so much appreciated! Blessings, Cyndi
  • Toni Toni on Jan 03, 2016

  • Allen Kang Allen Kang on Jan 11, 2016
    It's look like the Rose of Sharon.
  • Linda Linda on Jan 24, 2016
    At first I thought it was from the Hibiscus family, then found the following: Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) and Chinese hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) are cousins. Both are members of the mallow family, a large group of several hundred different plant species. While the flowers of rose of Sharon and Chinese hibiscus look similar, these plants are from different climates; one is temperate and the other tropical. So they thrive in different places.
  • Carmen Evans Carmen Evans on Jan 25, 2016
    Yes looks like Rose of Sharon if so it grows rather large and needs a prune at times or if hibiscus this also grows into a larger type shrub,so don't grow either one close to your verandah or you'll be digging it back out in no time.
  • Tommi L. Perkins Tommi L. Perkins on Jan 25, 2016
    Rose of Sharon. It is growing way too close to your house/deck and will eventually cause damage to the structures. Cut it out now, dig root out. If you wait it will be a real job and a pain to take out.
  • Car2083608 Car2083608 on Jan 26, 2016
    Looks like confederate rose or some call it magnolia rose
  • Glen_crowder Glen_crowder on Jan 27, 2016
    It looks like Castor Bean. If the leaves are very large and the plant grew fast ,you have a castor bean
  • Judy Judy on Jan 28, 2016
    It IS a Rose of Sharon
  • Trudy Nc Trudy Nc on Feb 01, 2016
    Tip: Unless you want an entire yard of these plants, cut the seed bulbs off as soon as the flower dies. They put out an abundance of seeds and spread rapidly. I've seen Rose of Sharon Trees grow 20 feet tall. And yes! Don't plant it close to your home or any buildings in your yard- the roots will damage the buildings. Humming Birds absolutely LOVE the flowers! :)
  • Patti Patti on Feb 09, 2016
    Looks like a Mulberry tree to me. I've had a couple of these "voluntarily" pop up around my house, but there are none of these trees in my neighborhood. So, curious and hopeful that it was a Rose of Sharon, I broke a twig off and took it to a nearby nursery. I was disappointed to learn it was a Mulberry tree. Apparently, that's what birds do! They eat the berries and then fly around pooping the digested seeds everywhere and spread these trees everywhere the go. I suggest taking a piece of it to your nursery and getting some professional advice. If you want the berries for baking or "jamming", cool! But, be forewarned those sweet berries can wreak havoc in the house when stepped on and tracked indoors!
  • Barbara Barbara on Feb 10, 2016
    Young mulberry or could be a foxglove tree.
  • Linda Linda on Feb 10, 2016
    It is definitely a member of the hibiscus family (Malvaceae) as is the rose of sharon and marsh mallow.
  • Carmen Evans Carmen Evans on Feb 11, 2016
    It could also be a Hibiscus which gets single Mouve flowers.

  • Susan Ziegler Susan Ziegler on Mar 06, 2016
    Rose of Sharon self seeds very quickly. If you don't want it where a seedling comes up. better pull it while young or you'll have many tree/bushes on your hands that are really hard to pull out.
  • Sue Bowlin-Glover Sue Bowlin-Glover on Mar 07, 2016
    Rose of Sharon are also well known for attracting be very careful if allergic to bees
  • Denise Esposito Denise Esposito on Mar 10, 2016
    Rose of Sharon...they also attract carpenter ants. They bloom late summer and the roots grow very deep and under foundation etc. they reproduce like crazy from the seed pods that are dropped after the flowering stage and can become a problem.
  • Tamsue Tamsue on Mar 19, 2016
    I thought it looked like a maple tree sucker...I have them all over ...cut if down and expetct to keep doing it. until itt is dead.
  • Judy Ann Judy Ann on Mar 20, 2016
    I dug mine up and threw it away, it was growing where I didn't want it, but it was a small tree
  • Jill Jill on Apr 05, 2016
    Rose of Sharon, of the hibiscus family. Old varieties throw suckers off and become VERY invasive. The newer varieties (one of the Proven Winners introductions) have seeds that are sterile and won't produce suckers. If there isn't a tree/shrub near by it could be from bird droppings. It should blooms, unless its pretty shady there, they like sun. Can grow 8-10' so decided if you want to leave it there. If you decide to pull it-make sure you dig deep and wide, follow that root system and pull it out. If it breaks off, it will return. Good luck
  • Jean Querciagrossa Jean Querciagrossa on Apr 13, 2016
    I too think it's a maple seedling.
  • Rosanne Rosanne on Apr 14, 2016
    it looks like a maple. It should get seed pods we used to call "noses" that look like wings.
  • David Ogden David Ogden on Apr 14, 2016
    There is know way this is a maple seedling. The leaves aren't even close to a maple tree.

  • Bonnie Sunday Bonnie Sunday on Apr 26, 2016
    Rose of Sharon for sure. If it is next a wall you need to transplant it away to another site I have them everywhere an they can get really tall over time time.
  • Darlene Odom Darlene Odom on Apr 26, 2016
    It looks like it needs some fertilizer (bone meal) or something. You could have your soil tested. Also water it well.
  • Grandmaquilts Grandmaquilts on May 05, 2016
    Dig it up and get rid of it! Humming birds love the blooms- BUT they drop seeds and the come up and spread everywhere. They grow fast and get huge, then you have root problems. Proof is how yours just planted itself and has gotten so big just this year.
  • Cyndi Neumann Cyndi Neumann on May 05, 2016
    Yes, It already looks right now just like it did last year and it never bloomed anything! I would like the space for something else, so Thanks all of you for so many wonderful answers and your time! I ALWAYS find answers to my questions here! Blessings, Cyndi
  • ObiaMan ObiaMan on May 06, 2016
    I never had a rose of sharon but to me it looks like an althea. I love my altheas. I don't know how long it takes them to flower but when they do, the flowers are beautiful, from to white to white with a mauve center to lavender colored with a pink center. There are loads of different ones. They grow fairly compact in diameter and can get pretty tall, 10' to 20' easily.
  • Judy Judy on May 07, 2016
    Althea is Rose of Sharon
  • Jane Jane on May 12, 2016
    It is a maple tree. The leaves do look like maple. I have rose of sharon, and those are not rose of sharon leaves.
  • Karen Henrickson Karen Henrickson on May 13, 2016
    It looks like an Oakleaf Hydrangea to me. It's a bit tall and spindly. Transplant to a sunnier location so that it will bloom and get bushier. They are attractive plants but require quite a bit of room.
  • Roxanne Wells Roxanne Wells on May 13, 2016
    Check out The Confederate Rose (Cotton Rose). It is in the Hibiscus family and grows to 8-12ft.
  • Linda T Linda T on May 14, 2016
    Looks like the Rose of Sharon Seedlings that i have to remove from all over my yard. They are a member of the Hibiscus family and come up from seeds.
  • My first thought was Althea, then Confederate Rose. But then again I pruned and pulled these two for hours today so I may seeing things that aren't there.

    • Cathy Cathy on Jun 04, 2016
      Like a hoya. There are many different colours and variety. They like to be pot bound, and never break off a flower head as they reproduce on the sme stalk year after year. Also they like a bright shaded spot not direct sun. Yours looks beautifully healthy
  • Jean Querciagrossa Jean Querciagrossa on May 20, 2016
    I no longer believe the original plant is a maple. Now I think it is a mulberry tree seedling. They have 3 different leaf shapes--2 are visible here--3rd is a mitten shape.

    I still agree with Lynn, a rose of sharon, have plenty of starts if anyone would like some
  • Brenda Owens Brenda Owens on May 22, 2016
    The leaves look like a Confederate Rose hibiscus. If it is, it will bloom on the late fall. Mine blooms in October.
  • Darlene Odom Darlene Odom on May 23, 2016
    I just researched many photos of confederate rose and rose of sharon on the internet. The leaves on your plant definitely look more like the confederate rose. They are wider and larger than rose of sharon. You can type in any name of plant and get pictures to help identify many times. Hope this helps. Yours definitely needs moved and some fertilizer. Good luck. These can be beautiful in bloom.

  • ObiaMan ObiaMan on Jun 11, 2016
    It really looks like an althea to me with all those stems. There must have been a bigger one there once that was cut down. They sprout up all over my yard because I have 2. One was getting too big so I cut it down and bunches of new stems came up and I started weaving them together and now it's about 10' tall and in full flower.
  • Gay Young Gay Young on Jun 16, 2016
    Althea and Rose of Sharon are the same plant with two different names. I had a lovely one that drew all kinds of Swallowtail butterflies and hummingbirds. It also drew a lot of Japanese beetles. If that happens to you, I am told you can sprinkle "milky spore" to stop the invasion but sadly did not get that advice before my hubs had cut down the bush to create a longer driveway, so I can only pass along the untested advice.
  • SS SS on Jun 25, 2016
    I had a few and after pruning them down one fall I noticed new ones coming up in the spring. I now have a 6' hedge. I trim it down once a year to keep it at a manageable height. Birds love to race thru them and they make great learning place for babies to go plant to plant.
  • Hi Cyndi, It's a Rose of Sharon (Althea). I have one. It took it a while to get tall enough to bloom. Now that it has established itself, it is a hardy plant, bending and stretching under and around a podocarpus to get to the sun. ....blooming all the way! *hugs*deb
