Several of these plants suddenly popped up in the area between my sidewalk and street. First time in 28 years in this house that I’ve ever seen anything like this. Pictures are the best description.

    Those look like the roots of four o’clocks.

    You are so right!. I have some planted in front of my porch but had never seen the roots since they started there from seed. I just went and looked at the leaves and they match what I dug up. Thanks a lot.
