You were kind to send me a link to look further. Your first response “ Straight down view is hard to see its stems fomation. Also it’s hard to tell without its flowers since there other plants with similar looking leaves. Please give us an update when it blooms. For Check out a species of Spanish needles genus (Bidens), the B. bipinnata and see if you have a match? Best wishes!” New photos here showing into growth. No blooms. Self seeded. Doesn’t seem to be goat’s or false goats beard. Thanks!!

    Thank you so much Lisa for these great follow up photos! They show the stems have opposite branching, this still points toward Spanish needles/beggar’s ticks (Biden) for me. Check out the included link below for more Biden bipinanta images, click to enlarge. Flowers would help to confirm or rule out this suggested ID. Best wishes to you Lisa!
