I thought this was my echinacea plant from last fall, but the more it rapidly grows, the more I think I may have potted a weed of some kind! Help?

A healthy, vigorous, rapidly-growing pokeweed, in that case!

Haha, my apologies. But that is the funniest title post ever haha. The weed is like "hey, she thinks I'm pretty!"

I have let Pokeweed grow because I did think it was pretty. *Blush*

I don't think I've ever seen a pokeweed, but I say a healthy plant is a good-looking plant! Big Grin

They are attractive plants, native in the US, the berries provide food for birds.

And, of course, poke sallet:
