Hey all,
This fellow has popped up in my parents yard. I have seen it before growing in fields and waste space, but am unable to identify it through my own research. It is located in zone 5b based on Canada's plant hardiness zone identifications, located in the Toronto-area of southern Ontario. It is about 1.5-2ft tall, no visible flowers/buds (yet... photo taken June 15). Any help is appreciated, since I don't want to get rid of this guy if it may be any help to pollinators, bees, etc.
Thanks in advance :)

Welcome. I agree with Janet. The leaves at the top will look different that the leaves in your photo. They will loose the three lobed look. flowering should be near if its 2 feet tall. Pollinators will love it.

Welcome to NGA! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
We're very glad to hear you are concerned & thoughtful of the pollinators. Thumbs up
