The seeds were given to me and all they could tell me was that it is a bush.

To my eyes it looks like a Mimosa.

Or possibly a Cassia.

My first thought was Cassia or Senna of some sort. Once you get blooms it can be narrowed down for sure but for leaf comparison, check out these images from our database:


But, the leaves also resemble Mimosa pudica:

If you touch the leaves and they close it's a Mimosa, if not, probably the other species.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thanks Lin for the link. It is a Mimosa and is a category 1 on Georgia's invasive plant list. Bummer. I guess i will be destroying these. Thanks everyone for the help. Better to know now than later.

Don't want that getting loose in your yard. We've been fighting it in a small area of our yard and I have no idea where it came from but we didn't plant it !

Sometimes the birds leave us gifts that we love ... other times those seeds they drop turn out to be lovely but invasive pests. Green Grin!

Looks like albezia (aka mimosa). Beautiful, but spreads seeds everywhere

I didn't even think of Mimosa Tree (Albizia julibrissin) which is another possibility. We took a road trip last week from Florida to Tennessee and back and we saw many Albizia along the roadways throughout Florida and Georgia. Some grow to 30' in height but there is a dwarf variety that some might consider a shrub.
