I found this growing under shrubs in one of my front garden beds. I haven't seen anything like it in my neighborhood.
I potted it pending ID, which will determine whether it gets planted somewhere appropriate or tossed!

I can't be positive but it looks like it might be Confederate Jasmine.

Thanks for the ID; I just tossed it in the trash bin.
