Found on our property in Laurens County. It is found on the edges of fields and trails just inside the woods. Spreading aggressively. Fast grower.
I seem to have lost your original form/posting with additional pictures. Please send it again with current pictures. I need to see the whole plant, but it may be difficult. Right now I can only guess that it could be a Helianthus or Verbesina, in the Composite family = Asteraceae, but there are other possibilities.
