weed or perennial?

flowergirl78(5b)April 11, 2013

Can someone please identify this plant for me? It seems to be spreading via runners from the area where I have Oenothera growing, however the Oenothera sprouts currently growing do not have the red/purple veining and margins this plant displays. I'm assuming it's a weed because I did not plant it! It looks similar to an Ajuga to me... but until I know for sure, I'm considering this a weed. Any ideas?

Here's another pic showcasing how it's spreading!

It looks like Rumex sanguineus, Bloody Dock, to me. I believe some people grow this for the foliage, YMMV.
