    These are growing in a shady area along a tall retaining wall.

    Update:
    I received information that this is Virginia Knotweed aka Jumpseed.
    Can anyone tell me if it is edible or used for medicinal purposes?

    Thank you, Carolyn.
    We plan on digging the whole area up, so I won't worry about trying to save anything.
