Question

What type of weed is this.


Hey I was wondering what type of weed this is if its a weed at all and if I need to get rid of it.

Now it won't let me upload my pictures so I will provide a description.

It has a bushy bottom about 12'' in all directions long skinny asparagus like protrusions withe leaves between the joints it has some red on it placed randomly and the leaves are like dandelion leaves except they're less pointy and more rounded on the edges.

I'm sorry if this is not enough to go on and if my writing is poor but please try and help, Thank you.

Oh and it comes back every year and I have tried to kill it but it's strong like rhubarb.

It might be but I never let it get big enough to tell for fear of it spreading.

Where are you--curly dock is a native prairie plant--edible and tasty when young--not much to look at.

If it is growing where you do not want it that makes it a pest you can most likely kill it with round-up you may want to give it a boost by mixing a 1/4 cup of veg oil to i gal round-up this will keep the herbicide on the plant longer
