I planted this plant last year, perennial. It was only to get a max of 36". However this plant is pushing 5 feet and doesn't look like what I thought I planted. Please advise and identify. Thanks, Don

It resembles quite a few species, but it appears to be a Murcurialis of some sort. If so, it was likely started as a wild seed, as they are common woodland plants.
If this is a Murcurialis plant should I consider it a weed or is this something that will look good. Also, is this something that will spread and create problems caring for my flowers?
