This sprouted out of freshly laid pine straw. I believe it might be the same type of weed / vine that infiltrated my juniper bushes after pine straw was laid around them. Pretty yellow flowers but in early spring it spread like wildfire. What causes it? Where did it come from? Seems the pine straw was the cause.

    Maybe a native in the Hypericum genus? Possible St. Andrew Cross (Hypericum stragulum)? Check the included kink below for more information. Best wishes!
