Pics are 3 different plants of same type. All are growing in filtered sun/shade. They have popped up in various flower beds in front yard and backyard. When they first emerge, they resemble the fake strawberry but quickly grow a central stalk with stems radiating out at ground level like spokes on a wheel. They then develop stems at various heights around the main stalk. Now new leaves are emerging at the ends to give a very layered appearance. Unique but I haven’t been able to id.

    Thank you! I’ll let you know what the flowers look like. Hopefully, they will bloom soon. It looks like they might. Such a unique configuration of stems and leaves. I had difficulty describing them to do an internet search.

    With out its flowers to be certain, I ‘m guessing only, perhaps a species in the Sanicula genus? If this is of the genus, when its blooms and you still don’t know, make new post with flowers photo. Link below is for Sanicula odorata syn. Sanicula gregaria, common names include clustered blacksnakeroot, fragrant snakeroot, and yellow-flowers sanicle. Best wishes!
