Is this a vine? I'd suspect it's a Clematis.

My first thought was possibly Passiflora. A Passiflora lutea variegated leaf on this page: http://www.ncwildflower.org/pl...

Looks sort of like fall clematis.

Good eye Tiffany & Arlene! Here's a photo in the database showing foliage that looks similar!

It is in a naturalized area and although there are clematis nearby as well as passiflora, I think it is Desmodium tweedyi . Wow...you guys are good! Can't wait to see the bloom.

I should have recognized this one but don't know why I didn't think of Desmodium, we have few types that grow here in Florida:


Anna, I hope you will consider adding your photo to the database, we currently don't have photos of Tweedy's ticktrefoil (Desmodium tweedyi)

That does look like a better match, cool! I've found Desmodiums with non-variegated leaves before, but was unable to nail down a species. The little flowers are adorable, on any kind, as far as I could tell from pics. And personally, would be a much more welcome addition than Clematis terniflora. Probably native, and not growing too big to control.

This discussion was in my mind while "wildflower spotting" yesterday. I did find this adorable leaf, but without violating my policy of not touching the unknown foliage around it, I was unable to investigate where it was coming from. (My skin is sensitive to getting a rash from MANY plants. I can't take chances in remote locations w/o soap & running water.)

canadanna,
I am not seeing this as a Desmodium; can you post more photos to show the back of the leaf, the individual leaf, the stem, etc. Thank You!
There are many plants that have white watermarked leaves when young; the pattern may be throwing us off a bit.

I like the first pic for autumn clematis... an invasive.

The second pic looks like passiflora... desirable.

Will do this weekend.
I did pull another smaller one up and it looked like it just had a little round "bulb " and not regular looking roots

Interesting! None of the plants discussed so far are ones with which I have much familiarity, so am anxious to learn more. I wasn't asking for ID for the leaf I found, but now I'm inspired to look in this spot again later in the year to see how it might be developing.
