White Clover?

Saw this up on a hill behind my house. This is an area I have that runs amuck with weeds, etc, so I never know what's growing back there. Thought maybe it's just clover that got diseased or something, I dunno....

Also some vines/bush with thorns. It's growing up like a weed/bush, but also has limbs growing along the ground, quite a bit of these on the hill.

First is a photo of Lunaria annua, aka honesty or money plant. The white discs are the seed pods from last season. The thorny stems look very much like a rose - there are weedy roses as well as cultivated forms. In my area, I would expect to see roses budded out so perhaps just some sort of bramble :-) And the leaves in the last photo do not belong to the thorny vine - separate plant(s) altogether.

Looks like a lonicera and some ivy in the mix as well.

I think the first is a dessicated Hydrangea blossom thrown out by some gardener or blown in there. It doesn't look like Lunaria to me gardengal. Try picking it up and I bet you will find it is not attached to anything. The rest are Lonicera and Hedera as GG says and not related to the Hydrangea.

I don't know if it looks like one, but money plant would be a possibility. Last year, my mom gave me a bunch of the seeds, and I just randomly tossed them around up on that hill.

As far as the ones with thorns, I thought maybe it was some sort of wild rose. Don't recall them blooming anything last year, but they are a bit out of sight.

Throwing my hat in the ring with the hydrangea crew.

RE: White Clover?

first glance I thought money plant, but blown up it doesn't look right. Could be hydrangea remains.

RE: White Clover?

And I've never seen Lunaria pods skeletonised. Hydrangea does it often.

RE: White Clover?

It's Hydrangea. I've been picking them up all winter. During windy days they blow like tumbleweeds over here from the neighbor's shrubs.
