|There is a plant that is sprouting up everywhere the past 3 years, that I have no idea how it started or how to get rid of it. It has a stalk that can get very tall, dark green leaves with berries and a deep tubular root that is hard to pull out when the plant gets big. I live in Maryland...any ideas how to get rid of it...|
|I can't tell from your description what the weed might be so you may have to take it to your local cooperative extension office for help with identification and control options, or you can browse the photos from the U Mass Weed Herbarium: http://www.umassgreeninfo.org/...
Each entry has color photos and plant descriptions. Hope it's helpful!
