In attached pic, is a plant that came out of nowhere fast..its about 4ft tall with huge leaves. I did not plant it and wondering what it is before I pull it up. In pic it is slightly wilted looking due to hot weather. Perhsps it's a weed..i just dont know. I sure hope you can help me, I'm new in MN (Prior Lake) and none of my neighbors know what it is. Thank you so much! P. Holmes
