This is not my plant. It is growing in a vegetable garden in Upstate New York. New owners of the property are trying to identify. Is it a valuable plant? or something that should be removed? The other plants in the area were onions, strawberries and some herbs.
The plant has not yet put out new spring growth. These are cell phone images of 3 of the same type of plant; sorry the images won't enlarge very well. Thanks for looking!
