Can anyone tell me what this is ?? I'm in southern ontario canada- it is a stemmed plant about 2 feet tall with alternating egg shaped serrated leaves.

Please & thanks in advance for any help !

Hi @moonrakercat
The leaves suggest it is some kind of Legume (Pea), possibly a bush clover. If you let it flower and post a photo of the blooms we should be able to give you a firm ID.

Hi June - yes I think you are right !! Possibly an alsike clover - but I would probably need to see the bloom to make a correct id - thanks again - didn't think anyone would chime in...

It could be Alfalfa. Is your city is using straw bales or straw wattles for erosion and flood control? The straw always seems to have alfalfa seeds in it.
