Bidens bipinnata from Deb, South Carolina

Popped up in a shady section of the backyard in Upstate SC. When I submitted pic to a Facebook plant ID group I got “bidens sp “ as response but upon searching nothing looks close.

Hi Deb,

actually, they were correct. This is a young Bidens bipinnata plant, often called Spanish needles.
