    This one likes almost full sun and was growing in a road cut.
    The leaves are divided into 3 parts similar to bush clovers.
    The plant is medicinal.

    Good luck!

    Why I do belive it's in the jokesonya genus.

    I was complimenting Wildcrofter for figuring out how to post a picture in the thread, not naming the plant.:D

    I coulda been more clear, huh?

    I think it is called Indian Physic or American Ipecac. What I want to know is who is going to volunteer to eat some to see if it really is an Ipecac? Not me! LOL
    God bless you and yours

    OK, this is a good one - can you give a hint?! Are the leaves smooth or jagged?
