All right I’m working on my garden and I have two different types of plants/weeds that I’m trying to identify… And decide if they should stay or go by Park Ridge. … Anyone have any ideas on what these are? And what you would recommend. Thanks. (I know the hostas and the ferns)

The leaves on the right plant look like hydrangeas, but I'm not an expert. Did you recently move in (has it flowered in the past? )

I think there is an app called plant snap that might help

There's an app that you can use to take a picture and it will identify the plant.

I have something similar to the one on the left that appeared last year. I sent a pic to the Chicago Botanic Garden and they thought it was Jerusalem Sage. However, mine ended up growing purple flowers, so I think it is really Phlomoides tuberosa.

The one on the right looks like hydrangea to me. It’s one of my favorite flowers, so I’m my opinion, definitely with keeping.

There is an app called picture this. You take a picture of the plant and it tells you what it is. Good luck.

Pesches might be able to identity them for you.
