Notes:

This plant first appeared about 3 years ago in a partial shade flower bed. The specific plant shown has come back in the same spot every year. Have not seen flowers on this specific plant yet I’m seeing a lot of seedlings appear through out flower beds this year. The leafs are serrated(double?), 5 leaves, or it might be 3 with the proximal 2 leaves being bilobed/originating from the same stem. Thank you for your help.

    They’re both natives… I wouldn’t consider either of them invasive, or even aggressive… Sometimes, a plant will be a little too successful for the location, and require a bit of thinning. I’d keep an eye on them, and watch for flowers, seed heads, until I had a definite id. You’ll probably be able to share it with native plant enthusiasts. Pot them up for plant swaps!

    Thank you for the replies. Out of the two suggested plants I’m thinking more the anemone than the black snakeroot. The plant has only grown about 2 feet in height each year. I do live in a wooded area and I have multiple seedlings within a 30 foot area of this plant. How long is the bloom time because I have not seen blooms or seed heads on this plant at all. Is it considered invasive because I have seedling sprouting every spring and the area they are sprouting is growing. I would hate to remove it if it is a good plant.

    It might be Anemone virginiana… http://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/savanna/plants/tl_anemone.htm Gotta look quick to see it in bloom, but those seedheads linger… It also might be Black snakeroot (Sanicula spp.) Those seedheads linger also…
