Notes:

We have several of these that came with the house. They come up every spring and sport a long and boring flower spike(probably 4feet tall)) during the summer. Were these planted on purpose or a weed?

    Thanks but it is not the mystery plant. Each one is about 6 leaves total and the shape is a bit different. The flower spike is actually about 6 feet and just has a few tiny yellow flowers at the end. These come back year after year, never multiply. The spike appears and lasts all summer. Any other ideas?

    It really does look like Broad Leafed Bear’s Breeches. there are a lot of environmental factors that can cause poor flowering. Too little water, poor nutrition, too many poisons used in the area. Look at this pic and compare leaves. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/57301/#b

    Thanks but that’s not it! Again it sends up a very tall spike with very unremarkable flowers on the tip of it.

    Thanks but not it! The leaves are much broader and the spike has flowers just at the tip.

    Maybe Acanthus spinosus, Spiny Bear’s Breeches. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acanthus_spinosus
