Sorry but it's not the same Jim. The plant I took seeds from has very small leaves like the mimosa and are separated by the stem,like every leaf segment has about 1 inch of stem between. It's a sprawly plant also with a center stem in the middle with the leaves. Appreciate the input' Sis'

Sis: Is it about 3 ft tall? Do the flowers form very long "bean" like pods?

Thanks everyone for the input' I did bring home some pods with seeds but they weren't brown yet. Gonna let them dry good and maybe get one plant,all I need' Then if any wants some seed,I'll be happy to share. I've been looking through several weed links and haven't found it either' Perhaps some of you have neighbors there in Tn. that may know the name??? Thanks so much,Sis'

Hi Sis,
Could they possibly be Cassia fasciculata (Partridge pea) as seen at the sites below?
