We aren't sure what the plant is either. It resembles rudbeckia (black-eye susan) or perhaps an aster. It might be an annual that self-seeded--offspring of something you planted there. Identification might be obvious when the plant is more mature (in flower). Otherwise, we'll let you know if someone comes up with a more certain ID.
