Grows like a weed in the middle of our warm growing season. If it isn't going to be a pretty bloomer I'd like to get it out now, before it eats the montbretia and daylilies. Hilarious!

It's about 32" high x 20" wide now, with no signs of buds yet. No thorns, thistles or prickles evident. Stalk is sturdy and quite impressive, at about 2" wide.

Thanks Stone, that's a close enough ID for me to yank it out. I tip my hat to you.

Stone is right -- American burnweed.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
