Do you know what this plant is

Asked October 3, 2017, 11:02 AM EDT

Do you know the name of this plant? I live in Ellicott city Maryland and I planted facithia two years ago not sure what happened to it, but this has grown in its place and I'm trying to determine whether it's a weed and I should get rid of it or if it's a nice plant and I should keep it. Appreciate your help!
