Notes:

This plant started to come in late spring. It’s now approximately 6 ft tall by 3.5 ft wide. The base of the stem is 3 inches wide, red in color and the texture of rhubarb. The leaves are oblong and vary in size, none of which are longer than 12 in. We just started to see blossoms on it, cone shaped and white (resemble white milkwort). We moved in, in November and the landlord doesn’t know what it is. I have kids and a dog, need to know if this is safe. Thanks.
