It could be a type of cinquefoil. It was introduced from Europe. Here is a link to look at and compare to yours. . No matter what it is you can spray it with a broadleaf weed killer or spot spray with glyphosate if it is growing along. Make sure that you read and follow label directions.

I meant to say growing alone and not along. You can also hand pull if you prefer not to use chemicals.

Thank you for taking time to answer. I think it might be the Norwegian Cinquefoil after checking the site. Have a good day!
