Appreciate if anyone can help to identify this plant.  From a friend who passed, so Id like to identify.  
It is perennial, located in SW Missouri, regular roots (not rhizome/tuber), had been in ground 8 years and has spread very little, about 6 inches tall & 10" wide.  It gets flowers, but I cant remember when or the color.
Any help appreciated !!


Just joined this forum...very nice.

It resembles a wild geranium.

Welcome to the the forum! What town in SW MO? I'm from Lamar but live in Nevada, MO.

It kind of reminds me of parsley. Is it perennial or does it self seed ?  Does it have much smell? Is it in a yard?

I agree with Ken; it looks parsleyish.

Maybe a variety of waterleaf?
