Notes:

Green leaves have developed wiggle white patterns There are small yellow flowers that open but most of the time remain closed. The larger pods as they dry contain the seeds. I have never seen this plant before and wonder if it could be poison.

    Thanks so much for the quick response and identifying this mystery plant for me. Have decided that as cute as it is I will not be growing this plant in my garden since it is invasive, and robs other plants of soil nutrition. There are many large farms in the area that grow corn and soya and I wouldn’t want to cause them headaches. Kindest regards, Joan
