What is this

  Hi can anyone identify this plant please not sure if it's a weed. I actually planted these as seeds out of a pack of Sarah Raven dahlia seeds but it's definitely not a dahlia!

    Looks a bit like quinoa ... but don't quote me on that!   ;)

    Do you  have a bird feeder nearby ... all sorts of things pop up around them. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Difficult to ID, this plant. Some suggestions are Atriplex prostrata & Chenopodium album.

    Whatever it is , it is going to have thousands of seeds, so unless you really like it, I would get rid quick!

    I'd also go with goosefoot (Chenopodium album) or a very close relative.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Maybe Atriplex patula (Common Orache)???
    Nice anyway .
