I recently moved into a new house. It was owned by someone who works at the local botanical garden so I am being extra careful before cutting out weeds, etc. It has been fun seeing all the flowers bloom though without knowing what was planted.

I am 99.9% sure this is a weed but I want to be 100% sure. I included big and small pics. I am pretty sure it is a weed because it is in multiple places. It hasn't flowered. It is maybe 2 feet tall in a couple places. Has a pretty sturdy stem that has multiple shoots out of the ground in each spot. Most are green but some have turned purple.

Thanks in advance

So it sounds like I need to get rid of it by reading about it. Thanks!

No...
Unless you have dairy animals, valuable wildflower!
