    Does this plant have spines or thorns on it? It looks like a weed called Spiny Amaranth, Amaranthus spinosus. It’s a common warm season annual that can sprout at anytime if the weather is warm enough. However, it’s not cold tolerant so a frost will kill it easily.

    Is it possibly a sprout from a nearby gardenia?
