This fern like tail grew from not one but two different potted Dianthus' in Kentucky. So far they are 3 feet tall. I separated the roots from the Dianthus and transplanted it on the corner of my garden but need to know what it is before it becomes invasive.
Any ideas

Hi USAFRetired, Welcome! and thank you for your service! 🇺🇸

Your plant looks like possibly Dog Fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium)
More photos for comparison here: https://tennessee-kentucky.pla...

Thanks...I've went out and compared them to dog fennel photos. I think that's it...Even though it's suggested as being somewhat invasive, I think I'm going to leave them alone for now. That is, unless someone convinces me that would be a big mistake.
