I have no idea what this plant is. At first I thought it was an echancia or black eyed Susan by the texture of the leaves. But with this flower now I'm not sure.

Ok. Is it a weed though. Should it be pulled or is it a nice non invasive plant

Take a look at the Plants Database.

or check out this from the Plants Database
Bellflowers (Campanula)

Personally, I would keep it. (Don't know whether it's considered invasive which, of course, would make a difference.)

I would keep it too. A weed is a plant you don't want so its up to you - Keeper or weed?

Campanula 'Sarastro'. Huge purple bells and not invasive in my garden. Nice long blooming plant. Remove spent blooms and it will repeat.
Old gardeners never die. They are just pruned and repotted.
