Yep, another mystery plant. This one I transplanted from behind my neighbor's house, so there's no chance I'll find the seed packet from it and have another "Doh!" moment!
The flowers weren't much - I *think* they were yellow and pretty small. I just thought the leaves were really pretty. It has a somewhat bushy habit, and it got about 2' tall last summer. It was in a fairly shady place originally, so I moved it to a similar site. Sorry I don't have more info, but at least the leaves are clear. And, nope, I don't need the impatiens ID'd. ;o)
Yes - The leaf does look like Virginia Creeper, but it's not a vining plant. The leaves didn't turn any color in the fall; they just eventually died back in the cold. It has a clumping habit and had small, insignificant flowers, yellow I think (but don't quote me on the color). It reached about 2' high.
Hi, I'm a new member and I love trying to identify plants. Your plant looks very much like Astrantia major to me. The only reason I am not 100% certain is because you said you think it might have yellow flowers and Astrantia usually has whitish, greenish or pinkish flowers. Do you recall the general shape of the flowers?
It is in bud now and appears to have fine sprays of flowers in clusters rising above the foliage. From the buds, it looks like the flowers are yellow. I'll get another picture when I borrow our friend's digital camera again!
Gardenwife, your description of the flowers made me immediately think of some variety of meadowsweet (Filipendula). When I did a photo search, here's what I came up with for foliage - looks similar, but probably you're the only one who can say for sure: http://www.gnc.com/wellness/natpharm/Herb/Meadowsweet.htm
