Me again. We planted some Xenia and this popped up beside it. Is it just a weed!?

Hello,

This is Acalypha virginica, commonly called Virginia copperleaf!
It is also called threeseed mercury and is a plant in the spurge family. It is native to the eastern United States and is very common.
You can uproot it easily.
