Hi, trying to identify a weed growing in my garden. It has a serrated green leaf with wine coloured tints at the edges. The leaves are presently about 6 cm long, and have a central vein that is also wine coloured as is the stem of the plant. No pics. asmy phone does not seem to want to allow me to post .. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's a darned nuisance! I've had it for years and despite pulling them out as soon as they are big enough, they grow year after year. I wonder how long the seed stays viable?
