This plant comes back every year in the same spot out in the wild, never bigger or smaller, just the same two little plants. The closest I've come is maybe Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium. It's not so easy to photograph but don't want to disturb it to get a pic.

Look forward to any and all imput.




One of the two small plants:

Looks consistent with Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium. Have you ever crushed the leaves and smelled them? It has a sweet, resiny, maple syrup(ish) scent.
