Can someone tell me what this is?
I am a Cali native new to midwest gardening and found this plant growing in my new yard and I've never seen it before. The plant grows amazingly fast. I first spotted it about 3 weeks ago when it was ankle high. Its now taller than me. The leaves are over 8 inches long and it has a bunch of white flowers starting to form on the stem tops.

Pokeweed (Sally's favorite plant). The berries are actually kinda cool, but it will seed like CRAZY!

Correction: it was pokeweed ANNIE, not Sally... I'll never win Trivial Pursuit at this rate!
