Thank you for submitting your question. This is perennial weed called Pokeweed (sometimes also referred to as Pokeberry).

Here is a link to a good document about it from Penn State University: http://extension.psu.edu/pests/weeds/weed-id/pokeweed

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
