    Scotty- correct!
    Fossil- correct!
    Defiant- aha! my trap is sprung. Note that there are 2 types of leaves- the smaller ones are attached to the plant with the beans (that was the trick)

    I don't even know. Pics online look like the persimmon doesn't have that heart shaped leaf

    Bill is right
    A wisteria vine hanging on a catalpa- the pods were actually the wisteria, not the catalpa! Took me a few when I saw it
