It is growing lustrously in morning sun, afternoon shade, in a gravelly, dirty area that once had a shed on top of it. I whacked it back 2 times this year before I forgot about it and then when it started growing again, I just fell in love with it. Plant ID app has been no help. It tells me it's clover. But it's almost 6 feet tall now and 4 feet across and is growing little nubbins on the end that will be....flowers? Nothing? I'm stumped.
Maritime northwest, close to the salish sea, cool and cloudy and rainy for most of the year.
