This is 2 stems, each with 3 leaves. The leaves are thick and stiff with serrated edges. The leaf is about 2". The whole thing is about 2" high. A few of these have popped up in the garden. This one has been here for about 3 years and has only grown this big. I'm in zone 6b in Pennsylvania. In the woods. I have not seen anything around that looks anything like this. Any ideas?
That's a young helleborus (Lenten Rose). If the conditions are off, they can take a very long time to settle in. Probably a seedling. In zone 6b PA, they are evergreen and old leaves don't die back until new ones have formed. If you want to grow them, transplant to a shady, well drained spot with high organic matter levels, and keep it watered. They are nitrogen suckers but too much can cause them to lodge.
