Q.What Is This?

Zone 12817 | Newbie gardener added on August 16, 2020 | Answered

Took out a couple dead trees, using the stump to decorate around and these grew up next to it. Do you know what they could be? Kennebec county Maine, full sun.

The first plant resembles an Amaranth, but I can't say with 100 percent certainty.

The second appears to be an Abutilon, but again, I can't say for sure.

It will help to let it mature. Flowers, or fruit will help pin down the ID with certainty.
