This is growing in my daughter's yard in northern Virginia (zone 7a).
Does anyone recognize it?
If not, I'll post photos after it blooms, which should be pretty soon.

I'm as certain as a woodies guy can be that you have a Rumex sp. there. It looks different than the most common one found here in the Ohio River valley region, but all the other ID hallmarks match.

Looks just like the Rumex I'm trying to control. Has a long taproot.
