In Hungary we have ragweed, also known as mimosa that looks like this. I also remember from years ago a garden plant called "golden rod" which looked like this too.

I wouldn't call it a weed - people certainly cultivate 'Golden Rod' in their borders and have done for years! I remember it in my childhood garden.....

I leave a clump at the back of my long garden for it's brightness. It is often included in the cut flower bouquets sold in fall, so it must be appealing to a number of folk.

Yupp, its Golden Rod, the herbaceous perennial, spp Solidago. Its easily dug up for division or removal!!.. but it looks just fine where you have it.

yep, i like it here Tony, it looks great! i'd leave it if i where you and speaking as a florist if you wanted to buy this as cut flower would cost you about £15 for this little lot! defo not a weed!
