Do you know the name of this plant?

This post by alibb reminded me about one mysterious flower with beautiful leaves, that grows under the walls of our country house every year in September – October. I saw its buds, but never the flowers. In our country snow can already fall in October – November, so I even don’t know, if this plant can have time to bloom? But it grows again and again, so, probably, somehow it make it πŸ™‚

I asked everyone and no one knows, what plant is this. Maybe someone here can help?

Yellow flower in this capture belongs to another plant.

  1. I found out that it is Ambrosia artemisiifolia, invasive species, that can become a noxious weed. But rare in our region πŸ™‚
    Also known as American wormwood, bitterweed, blackweed, carrot weed, hay fever weed, Roman wormwood, short ragweed, stammerwort, stickweed, tassel weed.
    Its pollen is wind-dispersed, and can be a strong allergen to people with hay fever.
    Ambrosia artemisiifolia is used in phytoremediation projects remediating soil pollution, for removing heavy metals such as Lead from contaminated soil.

  2. Interesting post, I went outside and took some photos of my plants. I did think it was like the Chinese herb for skin, but I don’t think so.
    The closest it looks like is a tomato leaf but then I don’t think it is.

    Lapka, I will write a post when the photos come through and you can tell me what you think of the plants. Maybe one is close to it.

    I would like to know what it is.

  3. If I only see the shape of the leaf, it is like kenikir (Cosmos caudatus) in our language, or something like that because there are several types, although I am not too sure because the plants are usually tropical plants, and the leaves of your plants appear longer. The plant includes members of daisies. This flower belongs to the Asteraceae (sunflower family) which is the largest group of flowering plants. Other names of kenikir are ulam raja (Malay), and yellow ray flower (English).
