found it in some gifted black eyed susans, thought the broad leaves looked like some kind of mum but the more it grows the more I wonder what I am growing.

Do the leaves have a particular odor when crushed?

This is just a guess. Could it be Artemisia vulgaris/Mugwort?

I've been wondering what it is; it grows in our pastures.

I was only guessing.
This morning I looked online to check if my guess was correct and I found this:

I believe you nailed it Greene , I am 99.9% nodding positive it is Artemisia vulgaris (mugwort) and more importantly Hurray! happy Hurray! with your identifying "guess" , Thank You! for your much appreciated assistance. Not sure I plan to keep it , but will most likely see what it will do in the little pot I have it in for now.

You can pick and dry the herb to make a dream pillow.
