Notes:

This fast growing plant grows between the woods and road in north GA. It emerges green and looks similar to clover but rapidly grows look reddish bronze. The leaves are fuzzy. I don’t know if it flowers but am hesitant to touch it. Thanks for helping identify this!

    I agree on the desmodium id. I couldn’t find pictures of the plant with the purple leaves, but I did find pictures that matched the growth habit. Good wildlife plant: http://ozarkedgewildflowers.com/summer-wildflowers/dollar-leaf-desmodium-rotundifolium/

    I agree, a fabaceae like clover, definitely not one of the rhus or toxicodendrons… Google is being very uncooperative this morning… But I wonder if it might be Rhynchosia… I always encourage my fabaceae the poor GA soil needs all the help the plants can provide…
