This came up near one of my native grasses. Has what appears too be fluffy seeds (second photo).

This second photo shows some of the white fluffy bits.

@LynneHTx

Hi Lynne, It looks a lot like Dog Fennel, Eupatorium capillifolium

Doesn't seem like this should be growing in my frontyard. I think I'll have to remove it.

It can be rather aggressive, spreading by root runners and seed. The only thing I have seen good about it is that some moth caterpillars eat it.
