    I need help identifying this plant. I am having a lot of difficulty identifying it using my Plant Net app. This plant started out small, with large leaves, and rapidly grew nearly as tall as my second story. The leaves are very large, dark green and seem quite thick. I requested my landscapers take care of it, but instead of uprooting it (because I’m assuming it is invasive and a weed), they just trimmed it. It had grown to be somewhere between 8-10 feet. Well now, the plant has grown almost the size it was previously in the span of a few weeks to months. It is about 7-8 feet tall. In addition, there is now a second plant growing close by it that is half its size, and a third growing to the other side of it that appears to be in early stages. I had a feeling it was a Paulownia tomentosa after doing some research, but the leaf type doesn’t match. Is this maybe a variant or close relative? Please help! Also, if it helps, I live in Northern Florida. Thank you in advance. Pictures are below.

    Obviously, if it is @Dirtmechanic 's parasol tree, it is WAY too close to your house!
