Can someone tell me what this is? My husband did not want to cut it thinking it was part of my garden lol. I have no clue what it is!

Looks like one of the Mugworts (genus Artemisia) but I don't know which one.

Do I see a very square stem?

Could also be Leonurus (such as L cardiaca) the motherwort...?

Stem is not exactly square, more like round with ridges running up and down it, if that makes sense?
I looked up motherwort pics, and some look like this plant, some don't. I guess I will need to wait for it to flower or bud? But I will keep it if it's motherwort, if only for the herbal value!
Thanks!
