Its leaves are almost triangular. I'm hoping it's not just more bitter dock for me to pull up. Glare Anyone know for sure?

Pretty sure it's not dock. Reminds me a bit of Scutellaria altissima, but you may not know for sure until it blooms.

thanks, Rob, that is very interesting! Thank You! Last year I sowed what I thought was Scutellaria incana in that area, although the leaves don't look right for that. Confused Maybe it was Scutellaria altissima instead?

Always fun to wait and see what something blooms as before deciding on an ID! Hilarious!

I agree, not S. incana. I've been bitten a few times by plants that I've grown "just long enough to see their bloom", only to have them become a little too well-established (Colt's foot comes to mind). But you're right, it's fun Smiling

I also thought of Scutellaria altissima, but it has a very characteristic veins, the first veins are almost parallel to the axis of the Thumbs down

Can you show a photo of the main stem? Is it round? smooth? hairy? etc.
There is a NOID plant with the same leaves in my front garden (from a local swap) and am curious to learn what your plant is.

To my eyes the leaves look nothing like the Lunaria annua; this link has a good photo of a single leaf. http://www.illinoiswildflowers...

Lunaria leaves the shape of heart, pointy end, on the basis of a deep slice into
Catmint leaves dull, rounded tip, on the basis of a blunt, a slight easing, the shape of a spear almost a triangle I tip my hat to you.

Watch out for the majority of similar plants are different bottom and upper leaves.

Definitely not Lunaria which I do grow. This looks more like a weedy thing, similar to what pops up in my gardens.

thanks, everyone. Just got home from work and checked out the stem. It is round and not hairy.

thanks, Stefan. I just went out and rubbed a leaf and smelled it (I think my neighbors enjoyed that sight! Hilarious! ) but I could not smell much. I also rubbed my Wild Ginger for good measure and couldn't really smell anything from that either, so maybe my smeller is not working too well these days... Big Grin
