Butterfly Bush, Ragweed?

betsyhacJuly 20, 2010

I have this plant (5 ft) growing in the midst of some other plants, and I'm wondering if I should replant and try to save it. I did a Google search and couldn't figure out what it is.

It is going to seed so any attempt to move it will probably kill it. On my monitor all I could see was the stem and the seed spray. It appears to be a member of the amaranth family.
