Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

Help me identify this plant. Someone posted it at GrowIt so this is #notmyplant but it is driving me crazy! The heck is this? PlantID

The leaf like bloom reminded me of a desert rose bloom.

If it is a bloom! Could it be a cabbage reaching up through something else?

Looks like a variety of #salix to me, but not 100% sure.

@KariSamuel, I see what you mean as far as the leaves go, but is there a Salix anywhere that makes green roses instead of pussytoes?

Yes, that is hard to explain! Maybe it's a cluster or mutation?

IDK who labelled this a Desert Rose, but c'mon peeps, this looks nothing like any Desert Rose I've ever seen. #cantberight
