I have that plant in my garden I have no idea if it has any interest for bees or butterfly that would make it a reason to keep it in my garden. Looks like a false pepper.

It is pokeweed. The berries are poisonous to humans but the birds relish them. The problem is, when they eat the berries, they drop seed everywhere and soon you will have pokeweed coming up all over your yard. And they are hard to pull up. You have to dig them. I would suggest removing it.
