Parthenium Hysterophorus, also known as Santa Maria Feverfew. I was really attracted to the lacy leaves of this "weed" growing in my garden, so I utilized its leaves in a few designs and learned more about it. 'SantaMaria Feverfew' / 'Parthenium Hysterophorus', is a native plant to northern Mexico and Texas. Although it is often pulled from the garden as a weed, it actually has positive effects on the surrounding plants by pulling nitrogen from the air and releasing it into the soil. It was once used by native people for the treatment of fever illnesses, similar to the European FeverFew herbaceous plant.
