I have this interesting plant growing in my yard, no one I know knows what it is, it's pretty so I've been taking care of it, it's about a foot or so tall, if I remember correctly it was a small plant last year so it grew again, or more after the winter. Any help appreciated. 😊

Look at these and see if they are the same. Compare the leaves and the flowers. It's difficult for me to compare them from the picture provided and you've been around it yourself. Hopefully this will be helpful. The link is to the Dictamnus, with the common name of 'Burning Bush' or the 'Gas Flower'

I too thought Dictamnus from the thumbnail but I don't think the leaves are right when I look at the "big picture". Is it possible to get a close-up of the flowers or whatever the pinkish parts at the top are?

Welcome! to both new members

Editd to add, can you tell us roughly where you are so that we can narrow down options. It kind of looks as though the tops are pink/white leaves that have been scorched rather than flowers. That's why a close-up would be helpful.
