Notes:

This plant appeared in my garden. It has a very long long (tuberous) root system. Also there are very tiny tiny pink flowers. When they open up – seeds are dropped which spreads this plant. What is it?

    I want to add that without flowers also not able to see the rest of the plant, it’s hard to tell for certain. This is only a suggested ID. If this isn’t of Mirabilis genus, please make new post with photos flowers & the whole plant. Thank you & best wishes!

    Do the flowers look like these in the included below, the wild four o’clock (Mirabilis nyctaginacea)? Or at least one of its relative in the genus. Best wishes! http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/prairie/plantx/fouroclockx.htm

    Could it be a trillium?
