What's my plant

Posted by prabuingarden 6A/6B NJ (My Page) on

Hello Friends -
I bought red blood flower seeds from seedneeds. It germinated in 3-4 weeks and I see it has a strong root system. Now it has grown over 3 feet and has not produced any flower. And the plant I see does not match to what I see in google images of this plant. I'm attaching the image of the plant, can anyone recognize this and let me know the name of this? If this is not a flowering perennial, I will take them down. I feel it is a weed, but would like to know for sure.
I have planted this in my front yard, hoping for a dashing red and yellow entry way. Any help identifying this is appreciated.

I'm attaching second image of the plant. Thanks.

Another close up shot of the plant. Thanks.

Unfortunately, that's Lamb's quarters (Chenopodium album), a weed. And not even red-flowered!

However, it's edible....

RE: What's my plant

Thanks very much "missingtheobvious". I will have to take them off. Of all the seeds I planted this is the one that kept growing tall and faster. I doubted initially but did not know what it was. Thanks for your help.
