I'm in Atlanta and this grew fast. not sure if it was here before, we just bought the house last year. the top has little buds (not in picture) and it hasn't bloomed yet. my wife doesn't like it, she thinks it's a weed. there are 2 more exact same so not sure if previous owner planted them.
Its tall and takes up room. anyone know what this is ?

It looks like Burdock to me. I agree with your wife. Smiling

It is curly dock -- Rumex crispus. One of my most hated weeds. Some people eat it and use it medicinally.

Yes, querusnut is right. Curly Dock. I still agree with Mrs. Michaell1999.

Wow, thanks for the replies.

Any suggestions on what I should plant here instead? Here is a picture from last August when we bought the house. Most of these plants are gone now.

The curly dock is on the lower level to the left in the picture. I was thinking of replacing it with the red leaf plant in the middle but don't know what it is.

The area gets a good amount of sun.

The red-leaved plant in the middle looks like a coleus. A good replacement.
Just don't let the dock go to seed or you will have them everywhere.
