I concur with …

Seems Boehmeria macrophylla

I am unable to find a match as per comparative images at Boehmeria, though it appears close to Boehmeria macrophylla Hornemann.
But I am unable match it with any of the varieties as per as per Flora of China

What are the species reported in your area?

Do you have any keys ?

After checking all the species, we can keep it tentatively as Boehmeria virgata subsp. macrophylla (Hornem.) Friis & Wilmot-Dear (syn. Boehmeria macrophylla Hornemann) though I am not convinced as I do not see long-cuspidate apex. Leaves appear close to Boehmeria ternifolia D. Don, but a typical apex is missing, as can be seen in the images.
