Hi Sharon, and welcome to It would help us a lot to ID that plant if you could let us know where you are, please? Just fill in your personal profile with your city/state/country and that will give us an idea of your climate etc.

Did this plant pop up from a seed, do you think? Those leaves look a little bit like my clerodendrum, but I'll reserve judgement until you tell us where you are.

Are you sure it's not a tree? Looks like Royal Empress Tree - Paulownia tomentosa. Knowing where the plant/tree is located would be helpful.

Those leaves remind me of Paulownia too:
