I have a planter out in my back patio area that is growing a plant that I can't ID. In the planter I believe there are Maltese Cross (Lychnis chalcedonica???) growing (can be seen in the photo). In the past, this planter has also grown Nasturtium.

In the planter there is a darker green plant with "broad" 3-4 lobed leaves growing that I can't seem to identify. I was thinking it may be a Columbine? Not really sure. I have placed a quarter coin in the picture to give an idea of the size.

Any help with identification and information about the plant would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance!

I didn't plant these. Is it common for them to sprout up on their own (columbines, not quarters....😁)?

Oh yes, I have them popping up everywhere, once you have one, they usually increase. Could have come in from birds originally or seeds in the soil.
