Can anyone ID this plant (ferny plant in centre)? Someone said fennel or chamomile, but I don't think so.

Fennel leaves smell like licorice when its crushed. Chamomile has little daisy flowers.

Can you post more closer up photos?

It could be an asparagus fern planted by a bird.

Possibly Tripleurospermum inodorum, aka scentless chamomile, false chamomile

Or stinking mayweed, Anthemis cotula

Or possibly pineappeweed, Matricaria discoidea


A sharp photo, especially of a leaf on white paper to show it more clearly, would help.

It sure reminds me of Dog Fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium)

That mystery plant has begun to bloom. Now looks like a type of chamomile, minus the familiar chamomile smell. Curious?

What are the size of those flowers? I can't see the blooms clearly but if that little white ray flower at the top of the photo goes with the plant in question, it may very well be Scentless Chamomile (Tripleurospermum inodorum) that sooby mentioned earlier which is an introduced species considered invasive in many areas.

Good photos for comparison on this page: https://update-techline.square...

If you remove a branch with flowers and place it on white printer paper for a photograph as suggested above we may be able to see it more clearly. It's too blurry at the moment.

Mystery plant has since revealed itself as a scentless type of Chamomile. Still don't know how it got into our Pollinator Patch

I have Chamomile in my yard too. I didn't plant it and no matter how much I pull, a few plants pop up every year. The seed blows in on the wind or is gifted by birds.
