There's a lot of them around here. I didn't notice until they bloomed.

I guess it's a good thing it's not in MY yard :)

Yes it is. They are lovely, but a real nuisance when all those seeds drop.

Thank you auntnance123. I had no idea what this was. I agree with the genus but the leaves aren't serrated. After looking, I believe it's K. bipinnata based on the leaf and flower color.
