Hello all! Last spring I sprinkled butterfly/hummingbird seed mix in a container. Some flowers in the mix are said to be perennials. Over the past couple of weeks I've had these popping up in that container. I don't know if it's a weed or a type of perennial flower seedling from last springs mix, as the mix does not specify all the types of flowers. Any thoughts?

Try looking up Polygonum odoratum (Vietnamese Cilantro)
It's in the plant database here.
