Weedy looking plant

This appeared in a pot in place of a dead sage, seems to be flowering now (has more since this picture was taken). Never seen anything similar wild, so no ideas at all what it is.

I don't see any flowers...if you have a shot with flowers, post it.

Sorry about the quality, the camera was determined to focus on the background.

It's better than many...I have to wonder if some photos are entries into the world's worst photo contest or computer generated random textures.
It looks like the top of it is dead. I don't really know what it is..but I'm fairly sure I can say it's not a known desirable.

Looks like Conyza.

RE: Weedy looking plant

Looking again that does seem to be it (leaves match). Funny, because I'm sure that was the first thing I checked and ruled it out (harder to ID smaller plants I suppose).

The top does look now (thought it was the beginnings of flowering. :o), it's probably not enjoying the tiny pot that it's in.

Thanks to all, I think it will be going in the bin now!
