The issue with harvesting young shoots for food or medicine is that mistakes are more likely than when identifying mature plants in bloom. Both of these plants have long fuzzy leaves and are similar in appearance. Especially from above looking down. This is when it is important to know what the identifiers are.
The plant leaves on the left are more rounded on the base and apex and I would consider them to be oblong. The leaves on the right are more elliptical. Both are fuzzy, but the hairs on the left are are much shorter. Both have white latex as a sap. Also notice the veins are more horizontal from the mid rib on the left plant. The plant on the left, I know to be Common Milkweed. An edible (learn to process it) and very useful plant. I’ll have to wait till the plant on the right matures a bit to positively Identify it. It’s not Dogbane though for sure as it is hairy. The point? Don’t be nonchalant when identifying a plant, especially if you are going to eat it. Know 100% what you have.
