Can anyone help me identify this plant? I hope it is not invasive weeds. Thank you very much for your help!

Looks like Redshank, belonging to the Dock family. Even the wild flower book refers to it as an 'annual weed!'

Nariz is right and I suppose most of us get it at some time but at least its an easy one to pull out.

Thank you very much for your quick response, Nariz and Inverglen! I checked it with that name online. You are exactly right! I will pull it out as I try growing some smaller plants in same container. Thank you!!
