This plant is growing in our yard in an area with mostly shade, except a couple of hours in the morning. It has recently started producing these green seed/fruit pods. Any help with identifying this is appreciated. Smiling

Awesome, thank you! Looks like I will need to give it some more watering as it's gotten quite wilted.

Just make sure you control it because getting rid of it is not an option.

I did read that it can spread rapidly and do want to keep it in check. If I'm able to control it, then why do you say that getting rid of it entirely is not an option?

Because once it gets going, there's really no stopping it. They spread by underground rhizome at a surprisingly fast pace.

......
If they are happy.....

If they don't have exactly the conditions they want....
They can be very difficult to grow...
Sulking for years, and eventually giving up.

They're one of those marginal plants here...
