    Hi, recently I get some seeds of Melia Azedarach, but the plant doesn't look like that at all. Can somebody help me to identify it?

    Thanks

    Certainly not Melia azederach, this is some sort of Asteraceae. Once the flowers fully open, I might be able to give it a try.

    It looks like pineapple weed, Matricaria discoidea

    Little bit on the glaucous side, perhaps -- but I vaguely recall seeing more glaucous forms of this in Manitoba (I've not seen any in BC). Still, if not that, something very close.

    I suggest that you give Tripleurospermum maritimum a try. Those fleshy, rather succulent leaves are a clue.
