It took two months to get a correct answer to the last Mystery Plant! We really stumped you this time, but a few gardeners persevered and managed to identify this fascinating plant. It’s Amicia zygomeris , a perennial native to Mexico. This plant grows to 7 feet tall and 4 feet wide and has oddly shaped, glaucus leaves flanked by purple-tinged leaflets. Yellow, pealike flowers appear in autumn. Amicia prefers full sun and fertile, well-drained soil and is hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 8 to 10.
