This was growing in a roadside ditch. It didn’t smell like skunk cabbage, it doesn’t look like false hellebore, not sure what it is. Any other ideas???

    I’m only an amateur, but it looks like Arrowroot to me, which I believe matches the scientific name SGC gave you. Produces edible tubers, if so.

    Tough to be certain, but I’m thinking Sagittarius latifolius. It may have bloomed since this photo was taken in April. Then again, with as much rain as we have had, it may be under water by now.

    It may be Plantain, a weed rabbits like which has a root a mile deep. Test it that way.
