Can anyone help me identify this plant? It came up in a flower bed, and grew to approximately 4 feet tall. At first I thought it was eggplant. It has small round burr like white flowers with a pink blush on the ends of the stems. Bees and ants love the flowers. The leaves are larger than an adult's hands.

Looks a bit like some kind of Burdock, which can be nasty stuff. Not sure. I've never seen it with white flowers.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
