I found my sister digging up a plant that sprung up in her gardening from soil she got from the edge of our field. I thought it to be an unusual Amaranth variety & managed (possibly) to successfully transplant it next to my kitchen.
Can anyone verify this or provide a correct ID?

|If it were an amaranth it would have had flower buds 9" ago...
says me- and I'm not a skilled botanist Or gambler, but I'd put money not an amaranth
The plural of anecdote is not data.

|Persicaria for sure. Flowers will tell you which one.
