If your goal is purely ornamental flowers, it probably doesn't matter what that is. Looks like some kind of mint. Are the stems square? Any odor if you tear a leaf? I think the last pic shows the flowers at full bloom (and it looks like it will make millions of seeds if left alone.)

Looks like one of the weedy amaranthus, like pigweed.

It is False Motherwort (Chaiturus marrubiastrum), I think. It's also called Lion's Tail.
