    I am seeking for help in this plant identification; initially raised indoors after seeing it pop out of a planter, it was replanted outside, three tears ago; from one, at least 50 seedlings came up last year. The plant grows from 4 inches to 7 feet; the color is a deep purple with small white flowers very late in the season; neighbors say it is a common weed. Maybe, but I have no idea and other more educated than myself in plants are stumped. I think it is something very common. JR

    I think you have some type of Amaranthus. Have a look at this thread from the Plant ID Forum.
