  • You say that this is a new plant you've acquired but it looks quite old to include a few weeds and has been pruned?

This reminds me of Mirabilis jalapa. It has trumpet flowers, which can arrive in a variety of different colors. It grows voraciously from a large tuber in the ground, with a similar look to a yam. In my yard it is an obnoxious weed that spreads easily via it's seeds and is difficult to eradicate.


My guess is Lindernia dubia, Yellow-seeded False Pimpernel. What type and color of flowers? Having technical problems....
