Anyone have any idea what this is? Been searching online for 3 straight hours and can't seem to find anything.

It might help to show its roots if you have them.

I'll take a pic of the roots when I get home later today, they look a bit red which I found interesting but I'll grab a pic later.
And yeah it does look Saxifraga 'ish but a little less succulenty hahah I dunno If I don't find out what it is I'm gonna try to give it a nice little home and see if it flowers or anything if it's just ground foliage I'll send a leaf of to a lab when it gets bigger and see nutrition content but not sure exactly if they'd test for toxins especially if it had some unknown toxins in it haha. I know I've seen a lot of plants and I work in a store that sells exotics and not so exotic plants and have never seen anything that really looks like this. My curiosity is rising ^-^

It does look like Saxifraga ... many are apparently now classified as Micranthes. Check out some of these images for comparison: http://uswildflowers.com/detai...

One possibility, Michaux's Saxifrage: http://uswildflowers.com/detai...

Scroll all the way to the bottom of this page for more photos, (It says they were taken along the N.C. Bartram Trail) http://www.laughinghills.com/
