Hmmm.......not sure, I've never seen one in flower, assumed they didn't, maybe should let one grow fully and see what happens so there can be a positive id.

 Hi
It's a type of rosebay. I forget it's proper name. Pops up regularly on my patch. If you leave it seed you will definitely see it's a type of rosebay willow herb. Feathery seed heads.

I also get them on my plot they blow in from other unattended plots.
They are an absolute nightmare and can put down roots anywhere sometimes forming a matt of tiny green plants early in the year.
When they mature they resemble a very small willow herb but instead of the long stem with the pinkish flowers these have side stems also and produce a profusion of floating seed the same way as the willow herb.
I agree with New Shoot that the only way I've found to control them is hand weeding.
I would not let them take over an area because then you would have to deal with the roots.
I've had allotments for a long time in the same area and have only noticed these over the last five years but they are everywhere on our site now.
Good luck  :D

They are a nightmare as you said, seem to be a lot more now than previously. I have a 3 x 2 M patch which I covered with plastic to clear the couch grass with patches of these under there, will this kill them off?

Covering with black plastic should do it.
If they are the same as the ones on my plot if you cover them before they a mature plant then they should die off.

As you can see from the old stem they don't grow as tall as willow herb but they are just as troublesome  :)
