What is this flowering weed-like plant?

Asked April 8, 2020, 2:37 PM EDT

There is a lot of this plant in my backyard. I would like to know what it is. If it is a native plant I will let it continue to grow, otherwise I may chop it out. Thanks!
PS: I love your service, it helps to keep me sane while “self-isolation”

This is a type of fleabane in the Erigeron family. They are common and there are several kinds. Your pink color is nice- many are mostly white. Some are native. They all are good for pollinators.
