What is this weed?



It seems to like the shade and gets pretty tall 4-5 feet. It doesn't (does it?) have flowers.

Pretty sure you got a horseweed....they grow much taller and lankier in shade...I get them in sun and if left go they can reach 4 ft, but I usually yank before that. When I first moved to this place I had a ton. They are annuals and easy to pull up.

Here is a link that might be useful: Conyza canadensis
