Not woody enough to be called a shrub really, despite its size. Although "wildflower" doesn't seem a very apt description either!

Thank you for ID. I was mainly wondering if it was native and/or weed.

Yeah well, weed. Bird dispersed and inclined to pop up after disturbance, although not exclusively. I remove them on my place, although they have a helluva taproot, so they usually can't just be pulled.
