Notes:

This plant came up and we have watched for flowers but none so far. Leaves are very soft. The flowers behind it belong to wishbones – this plant is all green but distinctly red stems. New leaves come on but no buds or flowers. After about 2 months it is about 1 1/2Ft. tall and wide. Can you ID for me? Thanks!!

    That is exactly what it is and I thank you. I will pull it up promptly as to not have it spread!

    It’s hard to tell with out its flowers & fruits. For now I could only speculating, maybe something in the Indigofera? To my eyes the stems appear hairy (?) and with your description : “Leaves are very soft”, I wonder if it might be the exotic Hairy Indigo (I. hirsuta L.) ? Flowers & fruits are needed to confirm or rule out this speculation. If it isn’t Indigo please resubmit with photos of plant side view, flowers & fruits. Copy & paste the included link below for images of this species. Scrolling down for all images, click on thumbnails to enlarge. Again I’m only guessing. Best wishes!
