Hi Paul, Welcome!

It reminds me of Mimosa of some sort; we have a few in our database with photos for comparison: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

That being said, it might help to narrow down a more exact ID if you can tell us what part of the country or world the plant is located. Smiling

Hello, I live in Central Florida. The tree randomly started growing in a pot and I wanted to see what it would turn into, as many plants randomly show up and they are different veggies sometimes. Such as squash started growing in my pole bean earthgrow box. It seems the tree leaves will close in on themselves the later in the day it becomes. During the day the leaves are open to the sun.

I don't know why I didn't think of Sesbania! There are a couple found here in Florida and considered invasive. Last year I noticed Rattlebox (Sesbania punicea) growing in an abandoned area behind my sisters house.

Another Sesbania found here in Florida is Bigpod Sesbania (Sesbania herbacea) This map shows the distribution in Florida. http://florida.plantatlas.usf....
