Looks a little like Helianthus tuberosus.

Not sure

Re: Plant ID

looks like a weed to me, but it will be interesting to see how it turns out. Usually anything that grows that fast is a weed.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: Plant ID

I haven't seen anything around the neighborhood like it, but then I haven't really been paying much attention :)

I guess I'll let it grow a little bit longer. It's taking up precious container space! And the aphids are loving it.
