Notes:

I am in Edmonton, Alberta. These plants are suddenly all over my garden. I have never seen them before. Thus far, they have no flowers or seed heads. They have a spiral layered pattern to their leaves and stem.

    Without flowers to be certain, for now I’m speculating this might be a species in the Tragopogon (salsify)? When it flowers and you still don’t know, please resubmit with photo of opened flowers. Check out some of the species in the genus with these included links. Best wishes! Link for meadows salsify (T. dubius). https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/65400/
