Welcome! to NGA

Can you update your info to include your location? What conditions was this plant growing in?

Maybe Potentilla but definitely not a fern. Do you know what the flower looked like? Look at Potentilla anserina - a California native found in wetland areas.

Drummondville, QC, Canada. I found it near a road , humid soil. I now think it's from the Rosacea family....

Those leaves look a lot like Silverweed which is in the Rosaceae family: http://www.repertoirequebecnat...

Welcome! I agree with Lin, it looks like Argentina anserina, Silverweed.

Argentina anserina is a synonym for Potentilla anserina. I believe Potenitlla anserina is the accepted name.

I was confused about Potentilla vs Argentina too but according to the Catalogue of Life, Argentina is the accepted name with Potentilla as the synonym.

I had checked that too, since NGA uses the CoL. Here is the page:

I always use The Plant List. It lists Argentina as the synonym. If "THEY" would stop changing names on us, we wouldn't even be having this conversation. Smiling

Its Silverweed. A native that always grows in wet places.
