    Do the leaves have any scent?Out of curiosity can you think of previous plants that were in that pot or near by?

    If this is growing in a pot, it would be something resurrected from a previous years plant or something dropped in from a seedling, flower head, etc. that started to grow. Think back about last years plants. It's most likely something that just came back.

    When at a loss, go on-line to a plant identification site in your area. This is much safer all around.

    To me it looks like spearmint that gree wild in our back yard. Does it smell like mint? Rub the leaves.

      @B.s.nelson Definitely not spearmint; totally different leaf structure. If you use Facebook, you can join the Plant Identification group there (there are a couple of Plant ID groups, geared for beginners or for intermediate users). Post a photo, and usually within minutes, a real botanist or other trained person will answer your question. They're fabulous. (I've been an Extension Master Gardener Volunteer since 2007, and I use these groups all the time for help with ID.)
