Something about this plant looks soooo familiar....

My first inclination is maybe a type of Thryallis? But I'm not sure that the leaves are right.
Can you get a close-up of some leaves? My eyes may be deceiving me. *Blush*

edited to say...never mind. *Blush* I don't think that they are right.

It looks a lot like Anglestem primrose-willow (Ludwigia leptocarpa) to me.

Bingo Jay! Thumbs up I think you're right with the Ludwigia, though I'm not sure the flowers are right for leptocarpa?

But I could be wrong! :-)

Leptocarpa is the only one I know that can have six petals. I edited the first post to show a link to my photos.

I am seeing some flowers with 5 petals and some with 6. I agree with @Horntoad:

Yep, L. leptocarpa will produce both 5 and 6 petals on the same plant.
