    As I recall from a pesticides course many years ago, a "weed" is any plant growing where you don't want it.
    If you've potted it and love it, then it's not a weed.
    P.S. I haven't any idea what it is.

    @ponderoni, I heard those exact words back in the 60' s from a very well known radio gardener in the UK.

    I have no idea what it is, but can see it is being cared for, loved and enjoyed, so that is all that matters.
