It is coming up around the hydrangeas on the north side of the house.
Seems to be single stalks.
The leaves are 4 inches long, smooth on top, ridged underside, no hair, and all the veins are coming from the same point.
No sap when stem is cut.
No obvious smell when crinkled.
The flowers are 6 white petals with a yellow/beige center
