Description

I've never seen the likes of this!
A return visit four days later showed the single blossom to have large petals of white, rose at the base, which dropped off easily: www.inaturalist.org/observations/25556002
This plant was growing beside an unpaved alley that runs between a weedy field and a residential complex. Possibly an escaped cultivar?

These seem a little too bi-pinnate and low-growing for psilostachya, but i'm not sure about it. These are not species grayi, and confertiflora doesn't seem appealing
