If by the "fern-like leaves", you mean the pinnate leaves (the ones with a central stem with paired oval leaflets) which dominate the center of the photo, they are probably the leaves which go with the flower. I don't know the species, but I can tell you that it is probably a Legume in the family Leguminosae. This is sometimes called the Bean family (Fabaceae). The flowers have the typical shape. If you grow peas or beans, check them out against the flowers in the photo and you can see the similarity. They probably will produce a flattened or rounded pod like a Snow Pea or a Green Bean. The leaves remind me of plants in the genera Cassia or Tephrosia. These may be in a related genus.

Could be a Mimosa.
