Thanks guys! In that same place we also have a native clematis, so it cool to see new things pop up on the farm.

The original species from Europe Agrimonia eupatoria is edible with the leaves and flowers used as a tea or to flavor alcoholic beverages. Medicinally its leaves and seeds are astringent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial, the leaves can be placed under your pillow to induce sleep or act as a topical treatment for migraines.

No idea what traits the "swamp" variety retained though.
