Last year I broad cast seeds in space off my deck, some were mixed packs. This came up and there must have been a lot of this plant. Last summer it only grew about the size of a dinner plate and stayed close to the ground. The brutal cold this winter did not kill it, it stayed very green the entire season. This spring it jumped out of the ground. It looks as though it will have many bloom heads. It seems to have little one growing out of the bottom. At night the leaves close up.

    Leaves look to me like Stokes Aster.

    I have that in my garden. Everyone loves it, including me. If the flowers turn out to be purple, it is a Spring Aster.

    Probably a Sundrop (Evening Primrose). If it is that, they may grow quite large and almost scary looking, but the evening blooms are lovely and will attract goldfinch and their relatives when they go to seed.
