Weed ID Help

I've been all over the web trying to ID this weed that popped up all over my garden while I was on vacation. It grows VERY fast, upright, in groups (but now is starting to scatter over the yard but seems to be staying in mulched areas). It has a tendril-looking bit on the top.

RE: Weed ID Help

It looks like Passiflora lutea, a nice native vine which serves as a host plant to certain butterflies.
I recently purchased such a plant for my garden. Perhaps you have a spot where it could climb on a fence or structure.

Here is a link that might be useful: Passiflora lutea
