I have several pots of different flowers around my back patio. I started them all from seeds. This plant has popped up in every pot. I’m not sure if i just got some of my wild flowers mixed up with all of my other seeds or if this is some sort of weed. Please help! :)

    Compare to ornamental knotweed varieties. One possibility Polygonum microcephalum ‘Red Dragon’

    This looks like a nasty weed that grows in my garden in Ohio. We call it Smartweed.

    Perhaps Polygonum

    I see that there are lots of Polygonums!
