Perhaps an Anchusa volunteer or something similar from the Boraginaceae family.

First thought was some Aster but that doesn't really fit

Is it in a damp location? It is very reminiscent of Pulicaria dysentarica but that is a European wild flower and I don't know if it is likely in your location. It would have yellow daisy flowers if it is.

As soon as I said Butterfly weed my wife was like oh yeah now I remember. She just thought it was another casualty of winter. I guess it was just waiting to make sure Mother Nature was actually done just teasing us with spring. Thanks for your help.
