one of our campus planters. Growth habit is decumbent,Stems are
branching and spreading and about 0.5 meters long, Leaves trifoliate and
exstipulate, largest ones 11 cm including petiole ( 5.5 cm ),flowers
with 4 sepals, 4 lavender petals, 6 stamen and a long capsule (6 cm)
chock full of seeds. Possibly seeded from mulch, and possibly
Capparaceae, Cleome sp.?
Can email pictures to anyone who thinks they can help with ID.
Thanks,
