    Polygonum avilculare - a weed of newly disturbed soil.  Sorry - hope you get something you want to grow image

    when did you plant the pip, take the weed out and leave the pot a while longer you still might get your apple tree

    And then you only have to wait about 5 years for it to produce fruit, 99.9% chance it will be a Crab apple too and if allowed to grow on could make a 25 feet plus tree eventually.
