Strange Plants

In March I bought some daliah tubers and they brought forth some great flowers. But this plant appeared beside them and I wasn't sure if it was a weed so I let it grow. It is growing strongly and the leaves are changing colour. It looks interesting but it has to be removed to make way for some cyclamen. Is it worth keeping and what do I do with it? Please, if anyone can shed some light. My local garden centre has no idea.

    It's one of the weeds in the chenopodiaceae family. If you don't want 3 million next year remove it carefully without dropping any seeds and get rid of it.

     

    Or we'll all be joining inthe chorusimage

    On the other hand, it's quite attractive isn't itimage

    The colour of the stems remind me of beetroot or something like agastache of amaranthus
