Hello all. This plant was observed in a dirt spoil pile near Grenada, MS. I don't recall any other plants with axillary clusters of flowers along the stems. Simple, alternate leaves. Climbing, non-woody.

Thanks very much for your thoughts!

They are here in Tx too. A native. Cotoneaster comes to mind, but is probably not the proper id.

Thanks Kitt. You're certainly right that some cotoneasters have a strikingly similar growth form.

An update: It's been identified as an atypical female of Amaranthus tuberculatus. See www.inaturalist.org/observations/7880038

Hmmm, not entirely convinced, but no better ideas. Thanx for update
