Can you identify this plant?

Asked May 21, 2017, 5:13 PM EDT

Can you please help me identify this plant? It is about 4 feet tall and has shown up in my garden in Glenn Dale. I'm not sure if I planted it last year or if it is a volunteer.

Prince George's County Maryland

We think this may be Melilotus officinalis, or yellow sweet clover, which is a type of legume, sometimes used as a forage crop.


That is it exactly. Looks like I need to get rid of it. Thank you so much for your quick response!
