I found this plant growing in one of my flowerbeds. I'm hoping its not a weed, could someone ID it for me? Thanks

Looks a lot like Gaillardia (Blanketflower) to me.

Most plants with square stems are in the Lamiaceae family (mints and salvias) The link below lists those plants in Lamiaceae that occur in Texas.

Thanks Jean! I did plant some Blue Bedder salvia seeds earlier in the year, but I thought I planted them in another spot. Hilarious!

I have had seeds "grow legs" especially during heavy rains... Salvia farinacea (mealy cup, blue bedder) is native to Texas, so it could be an outright volunteer.
