At first I thought coneflower, but the stems aren't square.
It has leaves bigger than a dinner plate, the entire plant is covered with fine hair, not dense like peach fuzz tho.
When you rub the stem, there's a very noticeable, pleasant, lemony herb smell, the leaves didn't seem to have any smell.
It's heading up to flower and it looks like a yellow composite flower.
Any help on this one is welcome!
