Hairy nightshade (Solanum sarrachoides) foliage is noticeably pubescent.  Margins are somewhat wavy and lobed.  Veins are depressed.

Stems are also hairy and ridged.  If fruit are not present, the degree to which hair occurs on the stem is a good way to distinguish this plant from black nightshade (also common in the Willamette Valley)..
