|Does anyone know what this beautiful little tree or plant is? It started appearing about a week ago ain my Rose Bed. The leaves are so nice and soft and I think it's pretty. I would like to even relocated if I could.|

| Shantelstone! I like your spiral bed. If you live in a subtropical climate (it's a good idea to add your location/zone to your profile), that could be a seedling of the Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia). I have this tree and it seeds freely in my yard.|

| it looks like a fern |

|Definitely not a fern.|

|Some sort of locust, perhaps?|

|It could, if it has tiny yellow fruit on the underside of the stem, be Phyllanthus urinaria Chamberbitter|
Possibly Mimosa pudica
Without a location, it is not easy to say exactly what plant you have.

|Could it be a mimosa? |

|I dont know what it is. The leaflets look similar to Delonix or Mimosa pudica. But i think its not Delonix nor Mimosa.|
Both plant have bipinnate leaves which come early even in seedling

|Compare with Sesbania.|

|At this point I doubt you are going to be able to make an accurate id. There are just to many similar plants.|

| Location, location, location is so important!|

|I just uploaded a pic for comparison.|

|It looks much like a Tamarindus indica seedling to me. (maybe sprouted from a thrown seed)?|
Tamarind Tree (Tamarindus indica)
But like Tara says, a geographic location is so important for determination as there are so many look-a-likes, especially at this young stage of the plant.

|I don't think so. The growth pattern of the leaves looks different to me.|

|God I love the ID forum, so much love and conversation?|

| Shantelstone, do the leaves close up at night?|

|In what state/city or country does this plant live?|
I agree that it looks like some kind of Sesbania but knowing the location of the garden might narrow it down a bit.
Sunset Zone 28, AHS Heat Zone 9, USDA zone 8b~~"Leaf of Faith"

|I was thinking Mimosa as soon as I saw it.|
Jun 29, 2016 4:38 PM CST
|Mimosa has twice pinnate leaves this tree does not.|
