Plant ID Please

I bought an Echinacea cheyenne spirit from tatton flower show last year and it stayed in its pot over winter. I planted it out in spring this year and I thought it was growing fine. However, I soon began to noticewhat was growing was not an Echinacea! I think it's growing in the middle of this. Please can you help? Thanks

    Hi image

    The plant with the wider leaves looks as if it could be an echinacea.

    The rest is willowherb - a weed which seeds and spreads - pull it up ... gently ... and your echinacea will have a much better chance.
