    Please help. I have five plants on our property that I’m not sure what they are. I’ll post the photos I took. I’m not sure I am posting this correctly.

    #1 is a Chenopodium, probably Fat-hen Chenopodium album.

    #4 is Virginia Creeper Parthenocissus quinquefolia.

    5. Looks to be Plantago lanceolata—AKA narrow leaf plantain (among other common names—assuming you are highlighting the foreground and not the potted plant). Generally considered a weed. Edible, but not good….

    Could 3 be Broussonetia papyrifera, paper mulberry?

    @Candyspics, when you just give your location as "US", we don't have any idea how to rule out what should not be in the running for your climate. You could click your user icon at the upper right (to the left of the envelop), select Personal Details, and give your city and state.

    Correct name Ribwort Plantain. It certainly does look like that.

    #1 is also called pigweed or lambs quarters
    under the microscope i saw a coating of white structures on the under side of the leaves....like a white powder coating that did not rub off
    but it did wash off eventually but not completely.
