Pretty sure this is a weed but I wanna make sure. Does anyone know what this is or might be? I think it may get small white flowers on it.

RE: weed?

Could be goldenrod (Solidago) which is an important wildlife plant but which is often considered weedy by humans, unfortunately.

RE: weed?

Looks like Fleabane, Erigeron, to me. It's a weed, but a pretty one. I've got one blooming near the back of the border right now, most of them get ruthlessly yanked but that one started blooming before I saw it and it looks so nice I'll just wait until it starts detracting from the garden to pull it.
