    So the title pretty much says it. I'm talking about the leaves with a purple hue. The plant also has small yellow flowers, and a bean pod that looks like an immature soybean. It's growing around one of my food plots, and she deer are browsing it like crazy!

    Not a very good picture to ID plants with.

    There are some different species of Sida, and any of them can be called "Prickly Sida" or "Teaweed." I would say that one is Sida spinosa. The one that the Southern Habitats guy sells is Sida Acuta.
