Velvetleaf: Abutilon theophrasti
Seedling: Stems below the cotyledons (hypocotyls) are covered with soft hairs. Seedlings have one round and one heart-shaped cotyledon, and cotyledons are also covered with short, soft hairs. The first true leaves are alternate, heart-shaped, covered with hairs on both surfaces, and have toothed margins.
Leaves: Alternate, heart-shaped, and gradually tapering to a point (acuminate). Leaves are approximately 2 to 6 inches long and wide, densely hairy on both surfaces, and have toothed margins. Leaf veins originate from a common point (palmate venation), and leaves emit an unpleasant odor when crushed.
