I got this from a coworker and I have no idea what kind of tree/plant this is. I'm trying to take care of it and I'm clueless. Please help. TIA

It looks like some kind of a herb/vegetable? Any smell to the leaves when you pinch them between your fingers?

It doesn't appear to be a woody plant/tree but rather a herbaceous plant of some sort. I wonder if it m ight be a variety of Jacobaea? https://garden.org/plants/sear...

strange, the image is not clear on my screen sorry, but it reminds me of some flowering kale, one with cut leaved typed, bolting.

First thought - mustard that is going to seed.

Second thought, what kind of a friend gives an over the hill mustard plant as a gift?

Third thought, I must be wrong... Smiling

I agree it looks like a variety of flowering kale - one that is being grown in far too little light. These guys really like a lot of sun.

There is a type of split leaf primrose that grows here which looks a lot like your plant - except it runs on the ground instead of standing vertically.

Shrug! Maybe one of the ornamental kales that is past its prime. Look at Crane Feather King and Crane Feather Queen ornamental kale.

do the leaves have scent and is the stem square?
It may be an artemesia of some kind.
