    I don't know, but unless you're sure you like it don't let it go to seed!

      It looks like it might be a sunflower.

        don't think sunflower--leaves don't look right, too close togehter on stem. Perhaps some form of evening primrose? looks like it will have multiple blossoms at the elongating top.

        If you want to keep it to see the blossoms, just cut it off before the seed pods at the bottom of the cluster start to ripen or you may have thousands of them next year.
