Description

A low growing green plant with no flowers. Multiple stalks coming out of the same ground base with almost a fern pattern, but with leaves instead of fronds. Each branch off of the main stalk was opposite another, with the leaves coming off in pairs, tapering down until three at the very tip. Typically from seven to five to three. The leaves had serrated edges, and were mostly oval shaped.

Yes, this is not a fern, it is in the carrot family (Apiaceae or Umbelliferae) although at this stage it does look a little fern-like. Those are individual compound leaves arising from ground level. I don't know off hand what genus this is.
