Every year, this delicate-looking vine pops up in my shady, wilder area in NW IN. Have never seen flowers on it. It will wrap itself around anything in its path. It doesn't stay on the soil surface but reaches up above other plants. Can anyone please identify? TIA

Hog Peanut (Amphicarpaea bracteata) . It does flower, but they are small and easily missed.

Listed as a nitrogen fixer - is this a good one to let roam as long as it doesn't trip humans?

It's a common native component of Midwestern woodlands, generally thought of as an early successional species. Not a bad plant by any means, although whether you want it in your yard is a somewhat separate question. Smiling

This is in my wilder areas - no formal beds, borders or plantings. Other wild stuff like Virginia waterleaf. I'll have to decide though where I let it roam as it's wanting to strangle Itea 'Henry's Garnet'.
