There *must* be gardeners who read this blog. I know for sure that there are people in my neighbourhood who read this blog.
To all of you, what is this plant?
I pulled all these roots out of my front bed this afternoon. There were a bunch of baby plants, but I just took photos of the best examples. Look at how giant that root is compared to how tiny that plant is (second from the right)!
Last summer, the biggest plant grew to be over 6 feet tall. If you measured around its leaves at the widest part, it was probably 4 feet in circumference. It overshadowed the lilies, which was a shame. Last fall, my landlord scythed it, and this spring, I mercilessly pulled the root out.
How do I get rid of it permanently? Will more come back?
