Found this growing in my pollinator garden, so replanted it in a pot. Slow growing and one of the flowers slowly starting to bloom. For all I know it could be a weed. However, if the bees like it I may harvest seeds (if possible) to grow next spring. Can someone identify it for me? Thanks.

Much thanks! I purchased and (for the first time with a nice grow light gift) germinated quite a few plants and flowers for the garden (getting ready to retire and have more time for gardening), but no China Asters. Must have blown in from somewhere. However, I will hopefully be able to harvest some seeds and add it to next year's garden!
