What is this Native of the Midwest?

Zaqa(10b)July 31, 2014

Currently in the Midwest for a couple of months. I have been finding plants that I am not accustomed to and would like to learn the ID for. With that being said, this is one of them growing in the garden. Central Indiana, Zone 6a.

Compare with Verbena bonariensis or V brasiliensis. There's not enough detail in the picture to tell. Neither native in N America. The big leaf behind is Ricinus communis. We can't see the leaves of the Verbena except two small ones at the top of the plant.

The backdrop plant is Ricinus communis/zanzibarensis.

Thanks for the ID. The leaves that are more mature resemble the small leaves farther dow nthe stem, but they are a mere cm or two wider and a few inches longer. Slightly serrated.
