Hello! Can anyone identify this plant? Planted a few packets of seeds including a mixed perennial pack. Is this a flower or rogue weed? It's the tallest and hardiest in our little flower garden......not sure if that's a good or bad thing! ;)
Thank you in advance from this new gardener. Smiling

My first wild thought was sumpweed. I hope I'm wrong.

My thought was Pigweed too. What is a sumpweed?

I'll move this over to the Plant ID Forum where it will get more views and a possible exact ID. Smiling

It looks like an amaranth to me too. Spiny amaranth (Amaranthus spinosus) is another one. (There are several kinds)

Thank you so much for the responses! It sure looks like it might be pigweed. I'll be taking care of that first thing in the morning! Thank You!
