Hi… I’ve had several of these popping up in my front yard for the past month now. Usually in mid-may is when they start popping up all over. Anybody have any ideas what these maybe? I live in midwestern Illinois by the way. Thank you

    You’re welcome Jeff! Appreciate this followup note of the roots presence. Plants photographs are not always clear enough for ID. On hand observation is very helpful for a confirmed ID as in yours case. Thanks a lot for the latex glove & Roundup trick, I will try this method on the unwanted weeds among difficult places Best wishes! Laura

    Thank you Laura…BTW…whenever I pull them out of the ground, there’s always a long yellowish root to it… What I’ve been doing to eradicate them is taking a little bit of Roundup with a latex glove and rubbing the leaves with it. Sometimes that works…. I do this to keep from getting it on the grass.. Jeff

    With these alternated leaves & toothed leaf edge (serrated margin), I’m still leaning toward mulberry. But with out flowers to confirm I could always be wrong. Check out these included links for various images of species of mulberry (Morus). Mulberry leaves shapes can be varied. You could also check for its yellowish roots color. If you are still not sure, let one grows more mature for more observation, and please give us an update. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
