Crush a leaf and smell it. Due to the leaf plan and square-shaped stems it is definitely in the mint family. But there are tons of species there.
Keep going!

Square stems are not exclusive to the mint family (Lamiaceae.)

My first guess would be Lantana (Verbenaceae) but it's hard to say for certain at this point.

Lantana (Lantana camara)

Welcome! , btw!
