Weed Identification

Q.Can you please identify this plant? My friend from Albuquerque sent this photo hoping I would be able to help, but to me it looks

like a noxious weed. This plant showed up after a cherry tree died in a pot. I can see that there are smaller plants like this plant behind in the background. It is kinda pretty, unique. Hope you can help my friend out.
