It's growing up in my flower bed that currently has Sweet Alyssum, Day Lilies, Marigolds, Gladiolus, Asclepia, Esperanza, and one other daisy-type plant that I forgot the name of. This one looks kind of ferny... I don't recognize it. Any ideas??

It looks like my candlestick plants. The leaves fold up at night or in the heat, too. It grows to be 5-6" tall and has beautiful yellow flowers.

Yup ! I agree. Definitely a senna ! they get pretty big, so if you check the link above and find that you like this plant, you'll need to relocate two of the seedlings.
